We encourage pupils to start thinking seriously about their future plans in the Upper Fifth, as they narrow down their A level choices. Then, throughout the Sixth Form, we provide a carefully planned programme of advice on university options, both in the UK and overseas, alternatives to university, such as degree apprenticeships, and career opportunities.
Pupils can seek support from their tutors, housemasters or housemistresses, as well as from specialists in many vocational areas, and our own professional careers adviser.
During the Lower Sixth, pupils are encouraged to research university and career options online, visit institutions and examine prospectuses and other sources of information. All of this leads up to applying for university in the first term of the Upper Sixth. The onus is on pupils to prepare successful applications, but staff are always ready to advise on completing the appropriate forms.
