There’s a big world out there
And we make sure our students get to know about it.
Helping students prepare for life after school is a priority at Sidcot. We have a full time careers advisor who works with Senior School students in groups and on a one-to-one basis to support long term choices and decision making. All students have access to impartial careers and educational guidance and the latest careers and Higher Education resources. External speakers are also regularly invited to offer students the benefit of their experience and extensive UCAS support is provided to students applying to UK universities, with additional support for those applying overseas. Assistance is also provided to those students considering other options including gap years, apprenticeships and internships. Members of the School community are invited to join Sidcotians Connect – a networking database that enables current and former students, staff and parents to seek mentoring, work placements and internships.
“The School prepares students well for the next stage of their education and for adult life. Students in Years 10 and 11 are prepared through dedicated careers lessons and also participate in work experience.” - Independent Schools Inspectorate
