Throughout their time in the Sixth Form, students are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to become lifelong learners.
We are very aware of the intense competition for places at the most prestigious universities and the top employers. All of our students are given individual guidance and support about future choices and we work hard to ensure that they have a smooth transition to the next stages of their lives.
We have established links with some of the top universities including Cambridge, Imperial College, Kings College and UCL. Students have the opportunity to attend visits to these different institutions. These experiences are essential for choosing the right course at degree level and to gain an insight into life in further education. We also have strong links with employers in large companies that run School Leaver or Higher Apprenticeship programmes. These offer mentors, work experience and the potential to take part in internship placements.
Students take part in a comprehensive careers programme including topics such as; exploring careers options, UCAS application writing and interview preparation. Intensive one-to-one support offered by our skilled and experienced tutor team ensures that all students are able to make informed decisions relating to their future and have the right tools to make successful applications to the destinations of their choice.
Students are encouraged to keep in touch and maintain strong links with the school through the Alumni scheme and we are always thrilled to hear about the successes of our former students.
