Preparing Students for Post 16

Preparing students for Post 16 begins in Year 9 when they are guided in their option choices ensuring that students choose the correct options that will allow them to follow their chosen career path.

Throughout Year 10 and 11 there is an extensive careers programme this includes all local further education establishments delivering presentations about their programmes of study to enable students to make the correct choice for them should they wish to continue studies.  We have many links with universities from across the country giving our students a knowledge and taste of university life. 

In addition to this visits are made from all major local businesses, where students are given relevant information should they wish to pursue a career in one of these areas. All applications are fully supported by Mr Ridyard our specialist Careers and Inspira Adviser. 

Inspira is a specialist provider of services for young people.  Inspira services support personal development and informed decision making that promotes positive life choices and outcomes for people at key transition points in their lives.

A new site has been launched by a national educational charity called Best Course 4 Me which highlights the degree courses that are followed by students with specific A levels. The website can be found at
