Life after Sixth Form
The Post-16 team works closely with the academy’s Aspirations Leader to ensure students are provided with personalised support and guidance as they prepare to leave the academy and move into Higher Education, employment or training.
The vast majority of our Year 13 students progress from Sixth Form to take places on under-graduate courses at university. There has been a significant increase in the number of applications to Russell Group universities in recent years.
Students who are endeavouring to pursue a university place are given help and encouragement throughout their time at Ormiston Shelfield Community Academy. This includes support through the application process and access to various forms of independent, impartial advice and guidance. The process also covers the practical elements of higher education, such as student finance and health.
