Careers & Higher Education
Our School

Beyond Sixth Form

Planning for a successful future, whether that be at University or through a degree apprenticeship as well as other career routes is an essential part of education.

Churcher’s College strives to provide a first class Careers and Higher Education service for our students and a comprehensive programme is available to inspire and support students throughout their time in the Upper Senior School and Sixth Form.

During the Lower Sixth, skills such as networking are introduced and students have the opportunity to practise these at a Networking Evening.

There is also an annual Careers Conference Convention where students are able to speak to exhibitors across a vast range of sectors.

As the Lower Sixth progresses, the focus shifts to researching courses for Higher Education applications.

University entry preparation commences with a Higher Education talk delivered by a University Admissions Tutor.

A visit to the UCAS Exhibition in March allows them to collect information ahead of the two-day in-house UCAS Conference in June.

As the students go from Lower to Upper Sixth they are supported by the Sixth Form team in finalising their applications for submission. Further fine tuning of students’ skills then continues with practice interviews by external interviewers tailored to the course or sector for which the students are applying. A comprehensive programme of support for Oxbridge candidates, as well as those applying for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science is in place.

There are also regular careers and higher education newsletters highlighting opportunities for Taster and Open Days, work experience and everything else relevant to life beyond Churcher’s.
