In our experience, a student who has a clear direction of travel is more motivated and therefore more likely to succeed. That is why we go to such great lengths to help you identify your goals, whether that is by providing opportunities to meet professionals from all walks of life; facilitating high-quality work experience, both locally and nationally; or by working in partnership with a range of external organisations.
Once you have identified your direction of travel, you will work with your Head of Year and your form tutor to establish the best way to reach your goal, whether that be university, a higher level apprenticeship, or employment.
All students are encouraged to apply to university as the preparation and application process provides invaluable experience for other types of applications.
This platform provides a one-stop shop for university and apprenticeship applications.
Each year, the sixth form welcomes speakers - many of whom are former students - from a variety of career areas. These talks provide opportunities for students to find out about a broad range of career pathways and are vital in helping students to identify future options.
Speakers for Schools
Students are also encouraged to sign up for virtual talks delivered by a range of speakers from the international community, including American politicians, photo-journalists and renowned surgeons.
In order to ensure that we are able to offer access to high-quality work experience, we work in partnership with businesses in the local community and companies with national and international profiles.
