Most of the students in our Sixth Form go to university and we provide plenty of support to make this happen.
Year 11 students considering our Sixth Form are encouraged to make course selections that will stretch them academically and make a smooth transition to further education or employment.
Students are encouraged and supported to make course selections early on and the process of UCAS applications is closely monitored to ensure that students meet deadlines and make appropriate course choices. Students who may be eligible for Oxbridge/Medical/Veterinary courses are identified and encouraged to make early applications. As each major deadline approaches students are reminded by countdowns via email and form tutors – no one in our Sixth Form has an excuse for missing deadlines.
We provide plenty of information for parents and students. In September there is an information evening for Year 13 parents on the application process and in November we have a Higher Education Fair where we have many representatives from University you can speak to yourself. Mr Carroll is available for guidance and support throughout the application process throughout the year.
Of course university is not for everyone but all students are encouraged to consider it as one of their future options.
Where students choose not to apply to university we provide full support to make applications for apprenticeships, employment or gap year.
If you would like more advice or guidance with your future plans please see Mr Simcox.
