OB Applications

Welcome to the Blundell's ‘Instructions and Guidance’ for OB applications.

  • The aim of the system is to streamline the application process, whether for UCAS or other options, for all students who have left Blundell’s School
  • Your initial enquiry should be sent to both Mrs Philippa Bucknell, Head of Careers Education and Guidance and Mr Graham Baily, Academic Head of Sixth Form for processing
  • You will then be emailed an information sheet

Instructions & Guidance

Blundell's School is happy to support any Post-A Level application for University or GAP year programmes/employment but to enable us to manage this efficiently the following guidelines apply: -

  • The initial enquiry must be made by email to pcb@blundells.org and gjb@blundells.org
  • On submission of the email applicants will be contacted by Mrs Bucknell
  • Applicants must check and adhere to the dates and deadlines given in the table below
  • Any applicant who misses the deadline will be asked to apply as an independent student (school will provide the reference but will not be responsible for the form)
