Higher Education Advice and Guidance in the Sixth Form

There are various events during Y12 & 13, alongside targeted Personal Development sessions and individual guidance, to help prepare students for making informed and realistic Higher Education decisions.  Over 80% of Acland Burghley students go on to university – a figure we are very proud of.

Academics from over 40 universities are invited to LaSWAP each June to talk about what their subject involves at degree level on Futures Day. Representatives from other organisations (e.g. taking a gap year, jobs in finance, studying abroad and hearing from ex-LaSWAP students about their experiences) also attend. This complements a visit to the annual UCAS Convention at the ExCel in March, where students can talk to universities from all over the United Kingdom and beyond about what they offer.  We have also taken students to other FE and HE exhibitions, include UCAS Create Your Future and the UK University Search Apprenticeship and HE fair.

LaSWAP also runs a programme of university visits at the end of Y2. Across the consortium, we have visited Brunel, King's, Queen Mary, Sussex, Herefordshire and more for bespoke LaSWAP events, plus open days at institutions such as Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford and Cambridge.

Laura Stanley is our Pathways and Progress Leader dedicated to pathways & progression.  She has a huge amount of experience in post-18 guidance and is currently a member of the UCAS Advisers Advisory Board alongside working with businesses, other schools and colleges, and the Evening Standard on work experience opportunities, visits, education expos and more.  Please email her on with any queries.

16-19 Tuition Fund

The 16-19 tuition fund for 2021-22 will be focused primarily on the learners in our sixth form who have not yet attained GCSE grade 4 in English and or maths. The majority of funding will be directed to these students in recognition of the importance of attaining a GCSE pass in core subjects in terms of students’ future pathways. This cohort of students covers both Y12 and Y13 students.

Tuition will be in small groups as specified by the guidance and will in the first instance focus on the lead up to the November series exams for GCSE English and maths.

In 2021 tuition will continue in run up to exams for these students. We will also look at whether the core group needs to be expanded to other students requiring catch-up support.

Tuition will be a combination of existing staff members being paid to run sessions at holidays/weekends and through external agencies.
