As well as Year 13 being challenging academically, it is also, for most students, the year when they have to make life changing decisions about whether they will go directly to university, or whether they are better suited to apprenticeships or A Level leaver programmes or would prefer to take a gap year.

The websites below provide a wealth of information and advice about each of the Post 18 options available as well as careers and are used in conjunction with one to one support and group work sessions to guide Year 13 students towards their most suitable path.
