There is a very robust Careers Education and Guidance programme which helps students to prepare for Higher Education and the workplace. The main programme starts in February of Year 12 with specific LLL sessions focusing on all future pathways. We also have an enrichment day in March for Year 12 to launch university applications with a guest speaker from a Russell Group university. In Enrichment Week in June of Year 12, we plan a two day event to focus further on applications and organise seminars with subject specialist staff, outside speakers and employers to help students in specific focus areas. The UCAS applications are started with full guidance and this continues with weekly sessions in September and October of Year 13.
We have specific support and advice on hand for Oxbridge, Medicine/Veterinary/Dentistry and other highly competitive applications and there are dedicated experienced staff on hand throughout this process.
For students seeking apprenticeships, we offer one to one support and advice and organise mock interviews with employers so that they can prepare for the recruitment process.
