Ahead of the game Congratulations to our University Foundation Programme students on another year of high achievement. UFP students will always tell you that another advantage of studying their course is that their results are already in by the end of June, whilst our A-Level students are left with a nail biting summer until 14th August. Most of them already have places secured at top universities and some are also required to complete presessional language programmes. These are some of the institutions our students
