Specialist support programmes
To help our A Level students reach their full potential, we offer two specialist support programmes:
Our Oxbridge Programme is designed for students planning on applying to Oxford University or Cambridge University and provides specialist guidance and support to help you prepare for entrance exams.
The A+ Programme is for students who are planning on taking highly competitive routes such as progressing to study dentistry or veterinary science, or attend Medical School.
Whether you dream of getting in to Oxford or Cambridge university, have your sights set on studying medicine at medical school or want to know how to become a lawyer or vet, we can help you achieve your ambitions.
The majority of our students progress to university. Around 25% of those who apply are accepted at some of the country’s leading universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
We also see students secure high quality apprenticeships and jobs or defer their university places so they can travel and gain once in a lifetime experiences.
Friendly & supportive environment
We pride ourselves on the welcoming and friendly atmosphere offered at Paston College.
Unlike traditional school sixth forms, our students are treated like adults and experience independence whilst also being given access to a wide range of help and support including specialist support for university, apprenticeship and job applications.
This helps ensure that you succeed and achieve your aspirations.
