Students at Northwood Sixth Form experience a vast and varied range of opportunities designed to prepare them for life beyond school. These include, but are not limited to:
- University visits – starting with one on the very first day of year 12!
- University Fairs
- An in-house careers fair
- Workshops from prestigious apprenticeship providers
- Mock interviews tailored to the needs of each student
- Hearing from a range of guest speakers from a range of different career backgrounds
- Bespoke support from organisations such as Uptree and pathways CTM
All students in year 12 complete 5 days (minimum) of valuable work experience.
Students are expected to apply for this themselves, but are supported by the sixth form team in finding and securing a meaningful work experience placement.
We know the specifics of our students’ career aspirations and signpost them to a range of fantastic opportunities to help them achieve those aspirations.
University and Apprenticeships
Students receive bespoke one-to-one and targeted group support in preparing their applications for university and apprenticeships.
In 2022, 35% of our students who are going to university, are attending Russell Group Universities. Most importantly though, we ensure they are pursuing their passion.
