Sixth Form

Achieving Excellence Beyond Belief

Sixth Form - Next Steps

Next Steps - Careers, Apprenticeships & University

We see the sixth form as a stepping stone to the next phase of your life.  On this page you will find links to careers guidance, apprenticeships and UCAS (the university applications system).

Every year our students move onto new careers, apprenticeships and University places.  You too could follow in their successful footsteps.

In 2019 75% of our students moved onto University and 22% went onto successful apprenticeships, while 3% moved straight into a new career.

We recommend that you take the time to look ahead now to see what possible career routes are available to you.  We also recommend that you speak to one of the sixth form team and our careers advisory service to help you plan ahead for the future.
