Destinations Awareness

Whatever a student’s goal at the culmination of their studies, wehave a clear commitment to ensuring that they are aware of all the destinations options available to them.

Information and guidance begins early, where our XPLORE lecture series offers presentations from specialist external speakers from higher education and industry.

In the spring of year 12, the highlight of our programme is our ‘Destination Fortnight’ where some 85 different lectures and presentations are delivered to students from a wide range of different universities and careers specialists, ex-students, and apprenticeship providers, all designed to showcase to students the wide and varied opportunities available to them.

For some destinations, a more tailored approach is required. Students who are members of ‘The Think Tank’ follow a tailored two-year programme of events and support for students looking towards early university entry for study at Oxford, Cambridge, together with other specialist courses such as medicine and veterinary.

Having the skills to join the workforce is also key, and we offer all students a period of work experience to experience what life is like in a business and industry. Work shadowing opportunities are also encouraged, and we call upon a fantastic range of local and national contacts to match students as closely as possible to their career and destination of their choice
