Careers and higher education

In This Section

Our post 16 team works with students to ensure successful applications are made to colleges and universities. Our students are regularly accepted at Oxford, Cambridge and other top universities. We also support students who opt for vocational routes.

A one-week work experience placement is part of our year 12 programme and takes place after AS examinations.

Higher education fairs and open days are also an important part of our sixth form experience.
