Categories: Parent's Information
We have now completed interviewing all year 11 students to discuss their onward destinations. The formal interview process has been further developed this year by using Google forms to record and share the outcomes with students and parents. We are pleased to have received 167 applications for the sixth form this year.
Last year overall 60% of our students received grades A*-B.
64% of our students went to university, and of those, 57% went to one of The Times top 40
and 10% went to one of The Times top 10
The most popular universities were Sussex, University of East Anglia, University of Kent, University of Brighton and Loughborough University with the most popular courses being law, sport and exercise science, psychology and mechanical engineering.
16% of our students went to a Russell group university, and this figure is well above the national average.
For students that went on to apprenticeships, providers included JP Morgan, The Financial Conduct Authority, Easyjet, UBS Bank, Essex Police and the Ministry of Defence.
We are very proud of our sixth form. If you would like to discuss the sixth form in more detail, please contact Mr Russell, director of studies or Mrs Ozer, deputy headteacher who will be happy to provide you with more information.
Sixth form UCAS and onwards destinations evening
The annual sixth form UCAS and alternatives to university evening will be held on Wednesday 02 May at 6.30pm in the Dame Elizabeth Hall. The evening will be divided into two sessions.
The first will include a presentation from a university admissions officer on the UCAS process and the second part will cover other
destinations, in particular apprenticeships, which are becoming a popular alternative to university. Parents and students are invited to attend both sessions or just one.
The evening is aimed predominantly at students in year 12 but any year 13 students who are interested and require further support in their onward destinations are also welcome to attend. Further information about the evening will be sent home in a letter after Easter.
