Life after GCSEs

The future success of every Uckfield College student is our priority. After GCSE’s the vast majority of Uckfield College students choose to continue their full time studies with us; taking up their place in our very successful sixth form. [Sixth form prospectus]

Our wide curriculum offer combined with our excellent pastoral care system means that we are the best choice for most students considering their next steps at the end of year 11.

We provide the careers information needed by every student to support them to choose their next steps .Our in-house careers service provides  a full, personal support package for the few Year 11 students whose career pathways are best supported via an apprenticeship, or a course provided at a specialist college.

Is very important to us that when students leave our Sixth Form they have a plan for their future, be that a place at university, a job or an apprenticeship. Whatever the preference, each student receives individual advice and guidance from the experienced  Sixth form  team to help them make the best decisions.
