Sixth Form Careers Programme

Waldegrave in an Investors in Careers School.  Careers and university preparation will form a central thread throughout our sixth form experience. There will be a wide range of opportunities for students to develop their knowledge about what they might like to do after sixth form including university trips, visiting speakers, coaching for Oxbridge application, UCAS, interview technique and personalised careers advice. Ms Corrigan and Ms Maya are our Careers Officers at Waldegrave and will be working alongside the sixth form team to make sure all our students 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. More resources are availabe on our VLE, FROG.
