Sixth FormOur students enjoy learning. Whilst university is still the main choice of most of our students, many more are deciding to either take a gap year or to gain further qualifications through school and college. We fully support our learners in whatever career path they decide through our Careers Guidance Service.

Student Destinations data

Year 11 NEET (Not Engaged in Education of Training) figures have been between 0% and 0.6% between 2012 to 2021. This means that the vast majority of our Year 11 students moved onto a successful transition pathway at the end of Year 11. Our consistent low NEET percentage highlights ongoing commitment to impartial CIEAG, and we are once again delighted with the 0.6% return in August 2021.


The DfE's Analyse School Performance (ASP) data for Year 13 students leaving Year 11 in 2016 shows the following statistics.

Please note that the data looks at students who left Key Stage 4 two years ago, hence it measures success and destinations after Key Stage 5.
