Bridgnorth Sixth Form: Post-18 Transition Information
After your time with us comes to an end, there are so many options and pathways you may go down to begin your future. We support our students into destinations which are right for them and their career aspirations. We also support students with applications for Apprenticeships and employment opportunities.
Every year we have students leave us for the most prestigious Universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Our leavers have also been successful in securing Higher Level Apprenticeships at places such as Grainger & Worrall, Jaguar Land rover, Ricoh, and the BBC.
Every Monday afternoon, all Year 12 students attend a CORE session which covers a variety of skills to do with university and careers, as well as talks from key speakers, and activities focused on employability and the world of work. There is an annual UCAS information evening in June, and trips to 'What Careers Live', 'The Apprenticeships Show', 'Oxbridge Conference' and local universities.
As a sixth form, we provide careers education and opportunities for all students, using tools such as Unifrog to aid development and skills, as well as allowing students to explore their options and make informed choices about their futures. Students all have a log in to the Unifrog platform using their school e-mail address. Explore the site at www.unifrog.org
Our careers lead in school is Mrs Bishell. Please contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org. To talk about your future, you can speak to our dedicated careers adviser, Melanie Lawrence, who is in school every Wednesday for one-to-one appointments. Alternatively you can email email@example.com. You can also speak to Mrs Fyfe in the downstairs Sixth Form Study Centre, who provides guidance on university applications, personal statements, and choosing courses.
