Campsmount Academy Post 16 works to support students’ progress to university or the world of work.
Our staff will work with students on an individual basis to help them to write personal statements, support them through the UCAS application process or assist them in gaining employment. We have provided some links on this page to universities and apprenticeship opportunities:
This is where students will apply for their place at university, uploading qualifications and their personal statement. It can also be used when deciding upon a university or a course, as students can search through university websites and course information for hundreds of institutions and thousands of degrees.

We encourage our students to continue on to university, and we have links with some of the best universities in the country. The Russell Group is a collection of the twenty-four highest ranking universities in the UK, which are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, and unrivalled links with business and the public sector. We feel that such places should always be within the reach of our students, whatever their background. We currently operate visits to some of these universities to give students a feel of what it would be like to study at these world-class universities.
We do not want our young people to set a limit on their aspirations, and aim to open their eyes to the world around them and the opportunities that it has to offer. We want our students to continually strive for excellence and to get the best out of their education, and so will inspire and assist them in joining some of the world’s best students and the world’s best scholars, not just in the UK but anywhere in the world.
