Unifrog Letter to Parents/Carers – November 2021



8th November 2021

Unifrog – The Complete Destinations Platform

Dear Parent / Carer,

In keeping with our commitment to provide students with outstanding careers guidance and tailored support when choosing their next step after school, we will again be using Unifrog; an award-winning, online careers platform.  All students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 now have access to this excellent website and the main focus of our PSHE sessions this half term is ‘careers’.

Unifrog brings into one place every undergraduate university course, apprenticeship, and college course in the UK, as well as other opportunities, such as School Leaver Programmes, MOOCs and every college at Oxford and Cambridge. This makes it easy for students to compare and choose the best university courses, apprenticeships or further education courses for them. They can also explore exciting opportunities further afield by looking at English taught undergraduate programmes available in Europe and the USA.

Additionally, the platform helps students successfully apply for these opportunities by writing their personal statement, applications and CVs and guiding them through the process, allowing teachers to give live feedback.

Students all have access to the Unifrog Platform, via their school email address (which is their username) and a password.  If they forget this, they can reset this at the login page.  Students can login, using their email address and password and they can do so from any device, including their school chromebook or smartphone. We would encourage you to use the platform with your child so you can support them as they progress through the school.

We have also set up a parent login so that you can use Unifrog as if you were a student yourself, allowing you to truly support your child. The form code you need is: biddenhamparents and you can sign up here: www.unifrog.org/code

Yours sincerely

Cathy Eckett

Deputy Headteacher
