Year 13

Year 13 – University, Apprenticeships, Employment?

Young people have more choices when they leave school these days and at TWBS our aim is to help our boys make informed choices by giving them information, guidance and support at this crucial time in their lives. In year 13 students are supported through the university application process. This can be quite daunting and we are fortunate to have members of staff within sixth form with a wealth of knowledge and they help the boys navigate their way through the process. From selecting the right university and their course, through to writing personal statements – staff at TWBS support all pupils considering the Higher Education route. For some of our boys we recognise that going to university might not be the right path for them and we work with these boys to help them identify their next steps.  Apprenticeships are a fantastic next step and we have visits from large corporates, such as IBM, who speak to our boys about the apprenticeship route. In addition we take students to the Berkshire Apprenticeship Fair where they have the opportunity to meet with employers who are offering apprenticeships in a wide range of industries. The Heathrow Jobs Fair is another event our boys attend and this provides those boys looking to gain employment at the end of year 13 with some useful contacts and potential job opportunities. Throughout the year there are a number of important dates and we keep boys informed of the following: Careers Fairs, University Open Days, UCAS Applications and Deadlines.
