Progression to Sixth Form

The majority of Year 11 students progress to our excellent sixth form.  To support subject choices, subject teachers and form tutors work closely with students throughout their GCSE years. 

The School’s Career Adviser, runs workshops and interviews throughout the year to help support students on subject choices and career options.  

The School's bi-annual Careers Fair sees business and alumni contacts, visit the School to talk to students about the wide range of career opportunities available so that they can make informed choices for A Level.

A Sixth Form Information Evening is held in February which offers students and parents the opportunity to speak to sixth form staff in further detail before subject choices are finalised.
