Support for Teachers

We are always keen to offer support for teachers in link areas with Oxbridge applications. Ultimately, we want you to feel empowered to support your students aiming for Oxbridge and we are happy to discuss what might work for your school.

Teacher Workshops

Who for: Teachers

When: Year-round (inset days or after school)

We know that the additional requirements in an Oxford application may mean that teachers benefit from additional support. We can offer advice or training on the following:

  •  Introducing into the Oxbridge application process
  • Preparing Oxbridge applicants for interviews and how to approach mock interviews
  • Supporting applicants with the admissions tests
  • Strategies and utilising available resources for challenging high-achieving students

These sessions can be delivered for a MAT or for a number of local schools for no charge. We are keen to develop links between schools to facilitate the delivery of things like mock interviews to share the expertise of teachers.

North East Teachers Conference
