Preparation for the future

Students in our Sixth Form receive extremely high levels of support at every stage.  From careers guidance to applications for university, apprenticeships or employment our small tutor groups and experienced Sixth Form tutors are able to offer tailored advice for every one of their students.

Speakers visit school to give talks on the world beyond Sixth Form and our broad network of contacts (including parents, alumni and local professionals) is tapped into on a regular basis to assist with finding work experience, shadowing or volunteering placements.

Our unique Truly Educated programme is designed to equip our Upper Sixth Leavers with essential life skills which will ease the transition to life beyond Derby High - cooking on a budget, managing finances, networking,basic car maintenance and even bricklaying is covered!
