We have years of experience of getting students into the best universities and on to the most appropriate courses, which is why we currently have over 600 students choosing us to help them achieve their very best.
“We work to provide all of our students with the skills, aptitudes and strength of character to meet the challenges of life beyond Greenford… we want our students to enjoy their education and to develop into responsible, caring and tolerant citizens”
Jeremy DUDMAN-Jones, Head of Post 16
Last year was another successful year at post-16, with our results putting us in the top 8% of Post 16 Centres (according to ALPS data). Every student in Year 13 who wanted to go to university did so with many going to the very best universities to study the most sought-after courses. Indeed, we have established a national reputation for our Post 16 Centre and it is not surprising that there continues to be competition for places. We therefore recommend early application.
At Greenford, we have an outstanding and wide-ranging curriculum offer, providing courses that are suitable for all, no matter what your interests. We are particularly proud of our deserved reputation as a caring community. We never forget that we are here for the benefit of the students. The quality of education is always about the quality of staff and, if you join us, you will have the support of two hugely experienced Post 16 Leaders, Mr Jones and Mr Dixon, and an outstanding teaching, pastoral and admin team. With four Pastoral Learning Managers with a vast amount of experience and no teaching timetables, we have the ability to support you every step of the way.
We have high expectations and consequently expect full commitment from all our students. If you work as hard as you can then we have the experience and the ability to guide you to the best possible progression pathway. Students are currently studying for degree courses at universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, UCL, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway, LSE, Warwick, Bristol and Leeds. Our highly regarded UCAS preparation programme includes Summer Schools in North America and the most prestigious UK based Universities.
Of course, results aren’t everything and at Greenford High School we provide our Post 16 students with a very wide range of additional opportunities and experiences. So, whether you are into theatre, sport, music, movies, media, debating, charity work or trips abroad there will be something on offer for you.
