St John's Webinar Programme


St John's Webinar Programme

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Webinar Programme, a series of online sessions running throughout 2021 to support students in their university decisions and applications. 

There are sessions available for Years 10 - 13 throughout the year, focussing on areas from Choosing your University Subject through to Study Skills and Careers sessions. 

The webinars are suited for anyone who hopes to apply to competitive universities: if you’re a high-achieving student, intellectually curious and ambitious, these webinars will be a great start for your university journey.

To attend these sessions, you will need to complete the application form here

If you are offered a place on the programme, you will be emailed ahead of each session with further information and a registration link. These webinars will take place after school (all final times/dates will be confirmed once you have been offered a place). You are not obliged to attend all sessions, and session recordings will be made available after the event to participating students. 

Please note that while the webinar programme has now started, sign ups are open on a rolling basis and if you sign up you will be sent a recording of events to date along with links to future sessions!
