Our Values

Applying to University

At Shoreham Academy we pride ourselves on the personal attention and high level of assistance given to our applicants in the run up to their university applications.

Beginning their Higher Education research early in year 12, with the support of their mentors, students make use of online resources such as Unifrog to increase awareness of their personal strengths and preferences as well as the opportunities available to them.

In Spring all level 3 year 12 students attend the Sussex UCAS Exhibition and follow up sessions assist with the narrowing down of course and university choices. In summer the focus is on writing that all- important personal statement and the opportunity to gain valuable skills from high-quality work experience placements and summer schools.

Through our APEX Co-ordinator, Susie Bishop, we are able to offer 1:1 guidance and support for those students aiming for highly competitive courses and universities while, as part of the United Learning academy group, we also benefit from an Oxbridge Co-ordinator who specialises in assisting those students, who are interested and suitably able. Potential medical and dentistry students also benefit from interview practice with a local GP, who is a member of the Brighton and Sussex Medical School admissions panel.

Our UCAS Co-ordinator, Anne Hopkins, is (nearly) always available in the Study Room to offer advice and help students with their UCAS applications.

Parents and carers can follow the link to access the 2023 UCAS Parent, Guardian and Carer Guide to everything you need to support your child with their higher education choices.

Case Studies & Testimonials

As a student at Shoreham Academy 6th Form, I was able to pursue a wide range of interests, studying for A levels in maths, physics, English and 3D design. I was part of both a close academic and social community, which enabled me to not only enjoy my subjects and work towards qualifications, but also gave me opportunities to develop skills through extra-curricular experiences, such as designing and leading an educational project. The 6th Form provided great assistance with applying to university and helped me on my way to getting an offer from the University of Oxford where I am currently reading Earth Sciences, a subject where I learn about the entirety of the Earth’s system, from atmospheric physics to oceanic chemistry and more than everything in-between! I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my course; I work in a fantastic department in Oxford and travel to stunning locations for applied fieldwork study.
