High Achievers

Ludlow College is proud of its reputation for academic excellence. Whatever your ability you will be valued as an individual and offered a range of activities to enable you to reach your full potential.

We want to ensure that all students have the opportunity to excel and develop as individuals. The High Achievers programme is intended for those students who have achieved excellent GCSE results (A* and A grades). This is a well established programme that will give these students the best chance of gaining a place at the most highly ranked universities and on the most competitive courses such as Medicine, Architecture, Veterinary Science or Law.

Ludlow is proud of its long association with Balliol College, part of Oxford University.

Experienced expert staff will assist you with building on your outstanding GCSE results to the highest academic results at A Level. They will also assist you with developing your profile, experience, interests and understanding for university applications.

The programme includes:

  • Visit to Oxford University
  • Support in preparing your university application
  • Practice interviews
  • Extra tuition to ensure that you have the best possible chance of getting into one of the top universities
  • Support with gaining work experience placements and MEDSIM and VETSIM opportunities, as well as various pre-university summer school and scholarship options

Those students who take part in the High Achievers Programme are encouraged to undertake the AS Level Extended Project Qualification, which offers an excellent opportunity to further develop researching and independent learning skills.

Academically More Able Programme

This is a great opportunity for students in Year 10/11 to be introduced to, and start developing skills such as critical thinking, research techniques, academic writing and scientific methods. This will not only assist students as they progress through to their A Levels but may also enhance their achievement at GCSE. To find out more, please contact your school Careers Advisor or contact the College directly.
