All pupils should understand the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. This includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace.’ Gatsby Framework 

All pupils in the Sixth Form have a number of opportunities to encounter Further and Higher Education Establishments. 

Our Sixth Form College provides personalised focused support for all pupils who aspire to continue their studies at University.  Pupils who wish to follow a career in Law, Medicine or Teaching are provided with additional support throughout year 12 to ensure they meet the early UCAS deadline in Year 13. 

Pupils who are applying for Oxford or Cambridge Universities are encouraged to attend focused workshops to fully prepare them for the application and interview process.  This is supported by a residential stay at one of these universities. 

Many of our pupils choose to continue their studies at Russel Group Universities and are successful in their applications.
