Post 16 Support


Support is given to our pupils during the lead up to finishing school and beyond.  In year 11 pupils will work with our school counsellor & post 16 advisor alongside our Connexions worker to offer advice and guidance in deciding the right placement for them.  Staff will support all applications, visits, interviews to make sure that the placement is secure before they leave year 11.  The support does not stop there, and pupils are able to access support up until the age of 18.

 Information for College & Sixth Form open events


College campus clip art free clipart imagesThe open events overleaf are really important to attend if you are thinking of doing further studies after your GCSEs. It is your chance to RESEARCH different places and courses, and find out what options are best for YOU.


Even if you are not thinking of this pathway (for example if you want to do an apprenticeship instead) it is still worthwhile to research colleges as a backup plan; so still try and visit a few places!


  • Before you attend an open evening, it is a good idea to do some research first – check on the college/sixth form website to see if they offer the courses you are interested in – this can also help if you are not sure what courses you want to do yet, so you can see the choices available at each college!
  • You can attend as many open events as you like – in fact, it is a good idea to visit at least 2 or 3 different places so you can make a fair comparison
  • You can bring whoever you like to the open events – family and friends are more than welcome!
  • Make sure you ask lots of questions – for example you might have questions about different courses, about the entry requirements (what GCSE grades you might need) or questions on careers or university. Don’t be afraid to ask at the colleges – they will be happy to help! J
  • There is no commitment to apply to a college or sixth form at an open event (applications are usually done in school in November time with advice and support from the school careers adviser)
