Advice is coordinated by the Head of Higher Education and Careers. Whilst university applications are very much the focus of life in the sixth form, pupils are introduced to a wide range of career options via the Futures Programme as well as dedicated events, such as the Careers Networking Event held at the Open Venue. Networking is an essential part of modern career development and we maintain close relationships with local employers as well as former pupils in various professions, the Forces and the business world. We are delighted that this year we have two recent leavers on the KPMG Training Scheme. This innovative six year programme offers an alternative to the traditional university route. Students study part time for three years and then full time in year four, before graduating with a BSc in Accounting. Two further years will see students achieve full Chartered Accountant status through the ICAEW.
