With the last term well underway, our Year 12 students participated in a UCAS Workshop event.

The aim of the event was to inspire future aspirations, focus on planning for their future destinations after Sixth Form and to provide information to grow knowledge, enabling students to explore higher education, training or employment routes. All students interacted well and felt that the information provided was invaluable in helping them make decisions about what their options are and what will best suit them in future.

Students visited the following three separate workshops consisting of; UCAS Application Process, Student Finance Research and Higher Degree Level Apprenticeships.

Students feedback was very positive: “I gained great insight on how to apply for universities, student finance and what is involved in the application process” and “Very useful and interesting information on the varying levels of higher degree level apprenticeships and the options of employers available.”

Richard Barnett-Richards, Assistant Headteacher, said: ‘Our UCAS workshops mark the start of the process of students researching and applying for their future destinations. We look forward to inviting families into school on 9 June to discuss the application processes and support available to students as they prepare for the next step in their careers.
