Progression to University

At Harrow School Online, we work hard to support the university aspirations and career ambitions of every one of our pupils. To this end, Success Coaches, House Tutors and Teachers all play a part in helping to prepare pupils at the school for competitive applications to the world’s top universities.

In regular 1:1 coaching sessions our experienced Success Coaches advise pupils about how to write compelling personal statements and college essays. They also prepare pupils for university interviews, coaching them on how to best field questions about their academic passions and wider interests. In order to make applications of this sort as powerful as possible, Harrow School Online spends time arranging a wide range of work placements for our pupils.

The school also runs a Study Skills & Mindset programme that our Success Coaches have designed to deliver bespoke lessons explaining the application process followed by universities across the UK and around the world.

By co-ordinating all this activity with pupils, parents, and mentors alike, our Success Coaches carefully coach pupils through all aspects of what is an exciting but sometimes daunting process.
