The best thing about Bosworth is people. Everyone works together to get the best out of each and every student and to create its unique atmosphere; very challenging but also incredibly caring and friendly.

Bosworth is proud to have a team of highly experienced staff to ensure our students are fully prepared for university applications. Offering individual advice and support is vital, helping students to make their application as strong as possible.

All students are encouraged to take advantage of the extra academic events we offer, such as Maths Challenges, science Olympiads and an Extended Project Qualification. Our two-week ‘mini-term’ event in the summer term is focused on supporting university choices and applications.

Students applying to Oxford or Cambridge, or Medical degrees, join our special support programmes at the start of their first year of A-level.

We are always pleased to welcome previous Bosworth students back to talk to our current students. This year we have seen students who are studying at Oxford and Cambridge, plus a Pharmacy student studying at the University of East Anglia.

We also have a thriving programme of visitors invited to share their expertise:


Various universities – including presentations from Imperial College London, University College London (UCL), LSE and the University of Southampton, and a visitor from Nottingham University to interview our Medicine applicants.



A local doctor and previous medical students who have run workshops on medicine, dentistry and medical ethics.
