Post-Sixth Form Planning & Preparation

Throughout the two years of Sixth Form we spent a lot of time with students focusing on their post-Sixth Form planning and careers.

This includes dedicated sessions in form time, inviting external speakers to talk to our students, work experience, individual advice and guidance sessions and trips to careers fairs and universities.

Our aim is for all students to be able to make fully-informed choices about their futures by the time they leave the Sixth Form.

Further information can be found below for students to conduct more research, or for parents and carers to support their son/daughter in making an informed choice. There is information on applying to university as well as apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships.
