During Year 12 all students interested in applying to University or are seeking an Apprenticeship are invited to attend the annual University/Apprenticeship Search Exhibition in London. The purpose of the event is to help students discover which university or apprenticeship might be right for them. During Term 5 of Year 12 students will receive their personal guide called ‘what are my options’ as well as various other tips/hints.
Students are encouraged to use their work experience placement week as a chance to explore their possible future careers. Work experience is for all Year 12 students and takes place during the last week of the academic year in July – Term 6.
During the Summer holiday all Year 12 students who are sure of their interest in University should be putting together their first draft personal statement before returning to Sixth Form. (Personal Statement guidance is available for download below).
Early in Year 13 during their Transition Evening students will hear from one of our local University partners to offer further guidance on university applications. At the Transition Evening Apprenticeship guidance will also be provided.
During Term 1 the Sixth Form team will be on hand to support students applying to University and their tutor will be putting together our school reference.
For those wishing to know more there are student & parent guides below. Feel free to download them.
