Life Beyond Padworth – Higher Education and Careers

We provide challenging and in-depth study as preparation for entrance to top universities in the United Kingdom.

Students are encouraged to identify areas of interest and aptitude early on in Year 9, with a view to choosing the most appropriate subjects and career pathway.  During Years 10 and 11 (GCSE), careers guidance is supported through the Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) programme and tutor groups, providing opportunities for individual discussions with students.

In the Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13: A Level and NCUK International Foundation Year programme), care is taken to ensure that all students are guided carefully in their choice of A Level subjects appropriate for their intended field of study and career intentions.  This is especially important for those wishing to study subjects where there is high demand for university places, such as Law or Medicine.  Students are helped and supported with their applications to universities through UCAS.  Our University and Careers Adviser gives comprehensive individual assistance to each student.  Preparation for entry to Oxford and Cambridge universities is also provided.

We have an excellent track record of placing students in leading universities, especially in the United Kingdom, and are committed to giving every possible assistance to students in our care and former students should they require further assistance.  The university destinations of our students can be found at here
