Careers & Higher Education

Our dedicated Careers and Higher Education Team provides a comprehensive careers information, education and guidance facility. This is available to advise and enhance appropriate decision-making by students when selecting their post-16 options, higher education courses, employment and training options or gap year possibilities. Students are also assigned a UCAS Co-ordinator who provides expert advice on the university application process.

Throughout the Sixth Form students are provided with the opportunity to meet with the Careers and Higher Education team on an individual or group basis. Students are encouraged to make use of the extensive facilities within the Higher Education library.

In this period, members of the Sixth Form will also have the opportunity to attend a series of events on Higher Education matters. For students in Year 12 this is supported by a visit to a university department and the Higher Education Fair at Worcester. There is also a Higher Education evening for Year 12 parents and students. Mock interviews are also arranged for Year 12 students with specialists in the field, chosen by the student. Students continue to be supported once they have left school through a post A Level guidance service.

Each year over 90% of our students achieve their first place university choice.

Work Experience

A week of Work Experience is organised by the School towards the end of the summer term for all pupils in the Year 12. The Head of Careers meets with all students in this year group to discuss where they would like to spend this time.
