Oxbridge Plus: The Top Flight Programme

Top Flight is our very successful 'Specialist Support Programme' for students who wish to apply for highly competitive courses including Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Dentistry, and highly competitive universities including Oxbridge. In addition to the individual support offered by the Careers Department, we offer weekly group sessions which take students beyond their curricular studies, both in depth and breadth, led by senior staff and the Leadership team.

Academics from a wide range of fields give weekly talks through the many student led societies; Simon Langton Girls has over thirty very successful societies linked to subjects, vocations and careers. Regular lunchtime talks take place from universities and medics, vets and dentists. Each student has a subject specialist academic mentor with whom they meet regularly to help prepare them both for their application and their interview. Students also have individual career planning sessions through their time in Year 11, 12 and 13 which include tailored personal statement and interview preparation.

As a result of our exceptional exam successes and the Top Flight Programme we have a very high success rate with applicants’ acceptance rates to Oxbridge, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Dentistry significantly exceeding the national average.
