The Next Steps

Every year when we say goodbye to our Year 13 students, we know they are well prepared for life beyond school.


The majority of our Sixth Form students will go straight to university, whilst others take a gap year. The interest in apprenticeships is growing rapidly, particularly in areas such as accounting and engineering, media, finance and law.

University applications start in March of Year 12 with a day at a UCAS fair where all of the leading universities and many specialist colleges will talk to students and give them an idea of what is available. There are also plenty of organisations offering apprenticeships.

The UCAS process starts after the May exams when tutors guide students through the form and help them complete their personal statement. This leaves the summer and the start of the Autumn term to research courses and institutions. With years of experience, LVS Ascot has a team that can support every application in any field.

Oxbridge / Medical

In March of Year 12, students who will be applying to Oxbridge or medical courses will be able to join a specialist group that offers support in the various interviews and tests that these applications require.


Where Do Our Leavers Go To University?

An LVS Ascot student is prepared for anywhere. Whilst Russell Group universities feature strongly every year, we have considerable numbers move on to Foundation courses to prepare them for art, fashion and design degrees. The range of courses and institutions is as varied and interesting as our students.

Wherever you want to go we can support you with an incredibly experienced Sixth Form team who will be able to advise, guide and answer any questions that you may have.
