Independent school in East Midlands UK


"One of the biggest plusses of the platform is in the way it has encouraged our students to think outside the box about what they will go on to do after they leave us."

Jo Storey, Head of Thornton College

 

Bespoke

“We weren’t as strong at advising students on apprenticeships as on universities, and Unifrog brings a massive database of apprenticeships into one place and makes it easy for students to search. It puts apprenticeships on the map for our students, and allows them to consider this route alongside their other options.

Regardless of your type of school, Unifrog can be tailored to your needs. This process starts with the fact that Unifrog staff are brilliant consultants and understand the pressures felt by different types of schools.”

 

Aspiration

“Unifrog has definitely raised the aspirations of our students. There was sometimes doubt amongst our students regarding whether they could get into a particular university or types of university. But Unifrog has given them a better sense of achievable options at even very prestigious institutions, which they’ve found very motivating.

When doing their searches students find the diverse range of ranking and filtering options very helpful, leading them to consider a wider range of courses than was the case before.

Our girls now book open days at universities that they definitely wouldn’t have considered before, and that is definitely thanks to Unifrog! In essence one of the biggest plusses of the platform is in the way it has encouraged our students to think outside the box about what they will go on to do after they leave us.”

 

Teachers

“The Reference tool has been unbelievably useful for us. We love the colour-coding to show the latest status of each Subject and Overall Reference - very helpful and easy to use!

Similarly at a glance Form Tutors can see where our students have got to with their Personal Statements, and can quickly give feedback specific to particular sections of each statement.

And because lots of other important information about students - like the courses they have been shortlisting, and the competencies that students have recorded - is also held in the same place, teachers actually learn more about their own students and can support them better.”
