Our pastoral team offer personal support and guidance when you are making decisions about your future direction. On an individual basis, we discuss career options and advise on entry routes.

In Year 12, opportunities to attend university ‘taster days’ or a summer school residential course are promoted. Our students are encouraged to take advantage of internship schemes and work placements to gain additional experience in their chosen field – particularly towards the end of the summer term.

Guidance in preparation for university applications includes visiting specialist events as well as established programmes to develop transferable skills, such as writing personal statements or interviewing well. We also work closely with students planning to apply for apprenticeships or wishing to enter employment directly.
