Careers advice and guidance

Miss Al-Hariri is our Universities and Careers Coordinator. Her role is to help all students throughout the school access information and advice about university and careers, so they are prepared for life after KSA.

Preparing for University

In Sixth Form, students have a university preparation session each week with our Sixth Form Leadership team, in small groups. This curriculum helps students to understand the university application process and prepare and complete this.

Students have 1:1 meetings with Miss Al-Hariri each half term, where they map out their plans for university, in terms of course and university choice and the actions they need to take to reach those goals. They have an assembly once a week where opportunities from universities are shared with students, which they can choose to apply for. All of our Sixth Formers have engaged with at least one university activity in the last year.

Preparing for the world of work

In Sixth Form, we use assemblies and university preparation time to prepare our students for the world of work. We have numerous speakers each term, from a range of professions. We also direct students to and organise work experience placements across a range of industries, to give students even more experience of the world of work. They also attend a CV workshop, have a Careers Fair and have a Careers day as part of their University Enrichment week.
