Alumni Perspectives on HE Application

Bolton School provides excellent advice to you on how to successfully apply and be accepted at the HE institution of your choice.  Here Old Boys reflect on the help they were given:

Vinay Anicatt

"Hi, my name is Vinay Anicatt and I am at the very beginning of my Philosophy, Politics and Economics course at Wadham College, Oxford University.

The way Bolton School handles a complex and demanding university applications procedure is remarkable, especially considering how meticulously we're taken through it. The help I received didn't stop at the drafting of my personal statement - I was patiently guided through every personal niggling issue. There were invaluable trips to university-organised talks and information sessions, reading material was recommended and we even had weekly forums where we could present topics of interest and then be scrutinised on them. I felt thoroughly prepared by the time I clicked 'submit application' and am extremely grateful to our experienced teachers for their collective efforts, once again!"

Thomas Harrison

"I am currently in my third year at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University where I am reading Earth Sciences. Bolton School was instrumental in guiding me through the whole application process, providing help with my personal statement and interview techniques. The teaching staff went above and beyond the curriculum, passing on the benefit of their experience and knowledge. I could not have been better prepared for the rigour of the Oxford interview process. It goes without saying that I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bolton School. My advice would be to make the most of your teachers and to listen to what they have to say."
