Careers support and student destinations
Sixth Form is a vital period where students will start to specialise in specific areas as they work towards higher education, a higher level apprenticeship and training or employment.
It is important to us that our students are fully prepared so they succeed in their chosen pathway. Our dedicated and experienced careers team work with every student offering objective and impartial advice so they can make a successful transition.
