Thinking about University

What we do

St Thomas More School has a long history of supporting students into University. The process starts early in Year 12 when we encourage students to engage with university outreach activities and to begin some research.

Throughout year 12, we offer advice, guidance and dedicated sessions on all aspects of university application. We use the Unifrog platform to drive this process which guides students to recognise their skills, experiences, interests and the subjects that they might consider for university study Our students go on to study almost any degree available at any university.
