Careers & HE Progression

Careers and university preparation will form a central thread throughout your sixth form experience. There will be a wide range of opportunities for you to develop your knowledge about what you might like to do after sixth form including university trips, visiting speakers, coaching for Oxbridge application, UCAS, interview technique and personalised careers advice. Bernie Corrigan and Debbie Walker are our Careers Officers at Waldegrave and will be working alongside the sixth form team to make sure you have access to the best advice possible.

We will also encourage you to research your own interests in careers, university subjects and individual institutions. Please use the list below to access links to websites that may help.
