Higher Education

Please click here to see our latest Leavers’ Destinations.

We work hard to ensure our Sixth Form students fully develop their aptitudes and interests. Information, advice and guidance are offered through a comprehensive programme of UCAS induction, Higher Education seminars, assemblies, university visits and tutorial support.

In order to assist candidates in making informed choices, we offer the My Uni Choices psychometric test. There is also a well-stocked Higher Education and careers resources section in the Sixth Form Centre. Our Head of Careers is always available for individual advice and guidance and can assist with work experience contacts.

Careers information is delivered through the diverse ‘Wider Perspectives’ programme on Friday afternoons, including sessions on CVs and interview preparation, financial literacy and talks by a range of inspiring alumnae and professionals. Our ‘Survive and Thrive’ programme will provide you with a ‘tool kit’ of essential skills for university via workshops on budgeting, careers, first aid and cooking nutritiously on a budget.

Throughout their Sixth Form career students use higher education platform, Unifrog, to help them research their courses and manage evidence in support of their application. Our leavers progress to a wide range of destinations, including Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities, fine art foundation courses and gap year programmes, or move straight to employment. In recent years, we have had a growing number of applicants to universities in the USA and Canada. We are passionate about helping our students discover what they love and we are extremely proud of our leavers’ destinations.
