Sixth form isn’t just about examination outcomes, it’s about preparation for the journey beyond. We make this an integral part of the Claremont sixth form experience, allowing our students to step confidently off our campus and on to the next stage.
The lower sixth have a weekly dedicated careers lesson delivered by a specialist careers teacher. Moving into upper sixth, this becomes individual careers tutorials in order to tailor our advice to individual students’ pathways and lead them to courses and career choices appropriate for their individual preferences. We also use ‘Unifrog’ software to help students research and coordinate their university applications.
We host a biennial careers evening where professionals from a range of industries speak with students one to one about their fields of work and how to get experience. During enrichment week, students are able to carry out hands-on work experience and gain invaluable insights into the world of work beyond the classroom.
We are also developing exciting links with our parents and alumni community to offer a bigger, broader range of guest speakers and opportunities for work placements, as well as a monthly programme of careers and critical thinking guest speakers.
The lower sixth undertake a week of work experience towards the end of summer term to boost their employability skills and UCAS applications.
