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 full-time Careers & Aspirations Lead and Careers Co-ordinator work with every student offering objective and impartial advice so they can make a successful transition.

The majority of our students choose to go to university and we will start working with students on their UCAS application in Year 12. We encourage visits to university Open Days as well as providing support and information for personal statements, applications, subject areas and student finance.
