Sixth Form careers and UCAS

We have extensive guidance for university applicants, from helping you decide which course to study, to guiding you through your personal statement. Your tutor plays a key role in writing your reference, and this is where the precious individual relationship between tutor and student is really beneficial.

Through the tutorial programme, you will be prepared for the next stage in your life through activities such as mock interviews and university visits if you are thinking of higher education. We will also help you prepare for Oxbridge entry, interviews and to apply for courses such as Headstart. 

UCAS is the admissions organisation for higher education in the UK. Its website is To keep up to date with the latest information, parents can subscribe to a parents newsletter via this link. UCAS has also launched a new information tool for parents – you can use this tool for advice, hints and tips to help your child, or someone you care for, through the application process. It also includes links to student finance information, though we have also put a separate direct link to Student Finance below it; along with a Youtube video about the finance application process.

We subscribe to Unifrog, which supports students to make informed decisions about university courses and higher apprenticeships.

We also have an independent careers advisor from Innervate available to give students advice.
