Support your child with UCAS

This academic year, we will continue to have a strong focus on the plans that students will be making for when they complete their studies in the Sixth Form. There is information to support you on the school website.

In Year 12, during form time, speakers delivered information on apprenticeships and university. All students had an individual careers appointment and they started their university applications via UCAS. This term, during form time, students will continue to receive support to complete the UCAS process, along with support and advice for students who wish to apply for apprenticeships, take a gap year, or any other post-sixth form option.
Information for parents and guardians about the UCAS process is available on their website.

The Sixth Form Team sends out ‘Weekly Careers Messages’ to students with details of different careers-related opportunities, from university lectures to apprenticeship vacancies. Please encourage your child to take advantage of what’s on offer so they can make fully informed choices about their future. If your child requires any additional support, regarding careers advice and guidance, please do not hesitate to contact Ms Braim.


University Open Days
Although, it may still not be possible to visit universities in person, they have been offering virtual open days.
We strongly encourage students to access these before they make decisions about where to apply. The UCAS website provides a useful source of information for finding out about open days.
