University and Careers

In an increasingly competitive world we understand how important it is for our Sixth Form students to receive the guidance and support they need to make informed choices and to proactively research and evaluate future pathways, whether FE, HE or employment.

Our school has a long history of preparing students for Russell Group and Oxbridge universities as well as other highly regarded universities. Equipped with the most up-to-date technology and information, all our students receive expert advice on which university courses might best suit their individual needs. They receive high quality assistance with the UCAS process, writing personal statements, university applications, preparing for interview, choosing firm and assurance offers, and student finance. Tutors’ knowledge and deep understanding of each of their students ensures they can provide meaningful, personalised references to universities and employers in support of Sixth Formers’ applications. Students are encouraged to visit the school’s dedicated Higher Education portal.

Sixth Form students are also encouraged to build on their employability skills, to develop their networks and to pursue opportunities for relevant work experience. The Sixth Form has links with businesses, parents and alumni to enrich opportunities, alongside provision for careers interviews and careers testing. News and latest developments from universities, careers and apprenticeships, and job vacancies are provided weekly.
