We place a huge emphasis on our higher education and careers support. We have in place a dedicated team of experienced members of staff supporting students throughout their time in our Sixth Form and who are on-hand to set them up for success in the next steps of their journey.
Ensuring that students are provided with the best guidance while writing their UCAS applications is something we pride ourselves on and, with a full-time Higher Education Co-ordinator, students are supported to make ambitious choices about their next steps. As a result of this support, a high number of students are successful in applying to, and being accepted into, the most prestigious universities, including Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.
Our specialist Higher Education Co-ordinator meets with students in both Year 12 and 13 on a regular basis to support them through the process of applying for their post-18 options while our specialist Careers Co-ordinator designs the two years of Sixth Form careers support to raise the aspirations of students and to develop their decision-making skills. A Careers Fair takes place at the start of each academic year and there are numerous opportunities for students to meet with employers and visit workplaces as the year progresses. Tutor time sessions also contribute to the programme and support the process of applying for, and carrying out, work experience at the end of Year 12. All of these opportunities provide students with a thorough understanding of the world of work and they leave the Sixth Form informed and equipped for their next steps in their lives.
