University and Beyond


Our aim at The Boswells School is to prepare students for further education and beyond. With top quality teaching, learning and extra-curricular programmes that are available to students, we feel that Boswells Sixth Formers are well-placed to get into a good university or degree apprenticeship programme of their choice.

We know just how important your university applications are and we spend a great deal of time helping you to get them right. We focus on early preparation of subject choices and personal statements, and on-going support from tutors, subject specialists, support from the careers team and university workshops delivered by University of East Anglia.

We are with you throughout the entire application process, right up to the moment that results are known. Our results speak for themselves: 72% of students leaving in summer 2018 secured a place at a university of their choice and a number of students in the past three years have achieved places at Oxford and Cambridge to study a range of subjects from Mathematics, English Language and Literature to Biological Sciences. We are an experienced team who have a wealth of experience in supporting students whatever their ambitions are.

But we are not simply interested in helping students get to top universities. Whatever you want to do when you leave school, we put in considerable effort to make sure that you find the university place or career that is best for you. And it does not end there. Through the Boswells LinkedIn page we encourage students to keep in touch with each other as their careers develop and by doing this they develop networking opportunities.

We are keen to provide a top quality, interesting and varied Sixth Form experience that equips you with all of the key skills you need to flourish and prosper at The Boswells School and in the wider community.
