PROVIDING SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE
As well as the academic programme, a key component of life in the Sixth Form is deciding on and applying to the next stage in their educational programme. With students of many nationalities in the school, we aim to provide personalised support, where possible, throughout this process.
As part of the Careers module, students will undertake a 2 week work experience placement in the third term of Year 12. Students are expected to research the placement for themselves, with guidance from the school. If possible, this work opportunity should reflect career aspirations.
Researching and selecting tertiary education choices and submitting applications can be overwhelming for students. A three day Careers Fair is held towards the end of Year 12 in which we welcome external and internal speakers to the Sixth Form to provide advice and guidance to our students on career and university choices.
SUPPORT WITH UNIVERSITY APPLICATIONS
On the return to Year 13, all students are given time and support with their university applications as a group, and individually.
