We spend a lot of time with students thinking about what happens after life at Sixth Form, whether that be university, apprenticeships or work. As such, students participate in a range of activities designed to enable them to learn more about the opportunities available to them, to reflect on their strengths and ambitions, and more specifically, how to get themselves onto their chosen post-18 paths. This will include discussions with tutor, a 121 interview with a Careers Adviser, work experience, visits to universities and a number of speakers from different professions and universities.

Applications to Russell Group universities, Oxbridge Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science

We know that some students will be interested in making applications to study at Oxford or Cambridge or for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science courses at university. These courses are incredibly competitive and we know that students may need extra help to give them the best chance of getting into their dream university or course. As such, we will identify students with interest and potential in these universities and courses in Year 12, and provide bespoke support which might include interview preparation, a visit to the relevant university, specialist guidance on applying to these universities and courses to put our students on a level footing with their independent school competitors.
