Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School

UCAS and next steps

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is the centralised service used for the application to most Universities in the UK.

At Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School we will fully support students in the application process. We will help them choose the course that is right for them, offer advice when writing personal statements, and will give practical help with interview technique. The deadline for most courses is 29 January 2025.

Early Entry

This applies to courses at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, or for most courses in medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry. The deadline for applications for early entry is 15 October 2024.

UCAS Conservatories

This is the application service for performance-based courses in the UK, including music, drama, screen and production courses. The courses offer individual tuition, practical training, and opportunities to perform.

Higher Level Apprenticeship

Higher apprenticeships give you the opportunity to gain Level 4 qualifications or above. Some offer the opportunity to progress to Level 7 (which is postgraduate degree level). As an apprentice you are employed and paid a wage throughout the course, training costs are co-funded by the government and employer.
