Year 11 Future Plans

May 2020

Dear Year 11 Student,

Most of you will have firm plans in place for the next stage of your education. We look forward to welcoming many of you back to sixth form. This is, as in every year, subject to meeting entry requirements.  You are encouraged to access the work available for each subject to support your transition, however this will not affect your application.

For students who are yet to finalise plans, or those who need to ensure that they have a plan B in place we would like to encourage you to continue to consider options and make appropriate applications. To help with this there are some links and ideas below. Please note this list is not exhaustive and we recommend you carry out your own research and make your own enquiries.
