All pupils are invited to attend college transition days. These days are organised through our local colleges in the summer term of Year 10. Pupils will ‘sample’ different subject areas and learn about the different courses and facilities the colleges have to offer. These invaluable days help pupils to explore their options and prompt the start of the decision making process about which subjects they may wish to pursue post 16.
Having a clear understanding of their predicted grades at this time enables them to explore the entry requirements for the different courses and make sure they understand in advance, the expectations of them by the end of Year 11.
Thinking about your future and the career path you are going to choose is one of the most important decisions you will probably ever make.
