The emphasis for students in Year 12 and 13 is preparation for UCAS and/or the world of work. Students are given extensive help and guidance in relation to UCAS in the form of a school based conference and an external Higher Education Conference. They have access to staff who have high levels of knowledge regarding the UCAS process. An information evening for year 12 parents regarding UCAS takes place in the autumn term. Students start the UCAS apply process in the summer term. Students have the opportunity to speak to the Careers Co-ordinator in year 12 and 13 regarding their Post 18 options. Year 13 students submit their applications to UCAS and many will then prepare for and attend interviews. Advice and guidance is available for those students who do not want to find employment or apply for an apprenticeship.
