University Admissions and Careers

Truro School Sixth Form University Admissions and Careers

A higher proportion of Truro School students successfully go on to Higher Education than at any other school or college in Cornwall.

With so many of our students achieving top grades at A-Level, they’re well qualified to apply for even the most selective universities and sought-after courses.

We give every student the opportunity to apply for university if they choose to do so. To help, subject teachers and other senior staff provide specialist support.  There is additional, tailor-made provision for anyone wishing to apply to Oxford and Cambridge universities, or for Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science Courses.

Whether you’re eager to attend university or are ready to enter employment, it is important to gain realistic careers advice, and polish your interview skills. As well as timely advice from our own, experienced staff, you’ll have regular opportunities to meet with professionals in a wide range of sectors, and benefit from their first-hand insights.

These decisions are not easy, so you’ll have the opportunity to visit the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter and Oxford, and attend an HE fair, Oxbridge evening and our biennial Careers Convention. Above all, you’ll be supported throughout the process by a community who want to see you excel and succeed.
