The latest data released by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) show that Richard Huish College students achieve exceptional outcomes at University.
A higher percentage of Huish students receive a First Class Degree, better than the independent sector, other Sixth Form Colleges and State schools and colleges.
Many of our students progress to University and studying A Level and Vocational qualifications at Huish allows access to the world’s leading Universities, giving our students excellent preparation for success when they are there.
Huish EnRICH, our extensive enrichment programme, enables students to build on their personal development with dedicated time to support progression and employability, life skills, community and charity involvement and health and wellbeing, meaning students leave Huish as well-rounded individuals who quickly settle into University life and can concentrate on their studies.
The impartial advice and guidance students receive from our dedicated Admissions and Careers and Progression teams ensure students choose the right courses to study which in turn supports their Higher Education ambitions, and the data proves that our students thrive at University as a result of this. We know applying for competitive Universities can be challenging but our expert advisors support students through this process by providing academic skills development sessions, which helps to enhance critical thinking and refine presentation skills, UCAS workshops, application guidance and mock interview practice, positioning our students with the best possible chance of success.
As one of only a few State Sixth Form Colleges in England to have boarding accommodation, students can choose to live in our modern and purpose-built boarding house which develops independent living, providing that perfect step from School to University and beyond.
If University is what you aspire to, Huish will support you on your journey and ensure the very best preparation to help you succeed.
