We encourage all Sixth Form students to explore their post-18 options. All students have access to Unifrog, our online careers package which enables pupil’s to explore the many different career opportunities open to them and the varied routes of entry.
Students are also able to request individual guidance interviews with our careers advisor. Our tutorial team are always on hand to discuss ideas and provide guidance.
We issue regular updates regarding applying to University, apprenticeships, employment, a Gap year or other education or training. Opportunities for exploring future choices are available throughout the two years of Sixth Form. Sixth Form students are able to seek permission for up to five absences per academic year to attend visits to explore these post 18 options. Permission to attend any such events must be sought using the Sixth Form Post 18 Choices Form. The forms can be collected from the Head of Sixth Form, and they are to be returned to him in order to keep a track of the events, lectures and careers options that have been explored.
Students will also be logging their own activity on Unifrog to support UCAS applications. For those students intending to go to university follow this link for a full list of UCAS open days and events. Many universities run free taster sessions which give students an opportunity to experience a taste of what university life is like. We advise students to visit individual university websites and use the Unifrog tool as a platform to build their expertise and confidence to making successful applications.
