Post 18 Support

We have an extensive programme of careers education, information advice and guidance (CEIAG) designed to prepare you for your next steps after sixth form. Our work experience, academic support and enrichment programmes offer students opportunities to widen their knowledge of the world of work and higher education. 

Post-18 Support/Careers Information, Advice and Guidance
If you wish to apply for university you will be supported throughout the UCAS application process.  If you do not wish to pursue a university route, support is given to ensure you are aware of alternative routes to your chosen destination, for example apprenticeships or employment.  Each student will be assigned a personal career mentor who will help you with your personal statement, UCAS, employment or apprenticeship application form. All applications are checked thoroughly by the Director of Post-16 Studies and Headteacher before they are sent off to ensure that they are of the highest possible standard and reflect your abilities and potential.

Additional Support
