Personal statement resources

(suitable for parents of sixth formers)

For students still hoping to apply to university for the 2021/2022 academic year it would be great if they gave some thought over the summer holidays about the sorts of things that they might want to include in their personal statement – ideally returning to school with a completed first draft.

To help parents guide their children on how to think about personal statements, we’ve created a range of helpful tools:

·        The Parents’ Guide to Personal statements - 2021 edition

·        A mind map to guide through personal statement content

·        The Dos and Don’ts of writing a personal statement
