Helping students to shape their future within a Christian community
We aim to help our students to realise their ambitions for higher education and employment. There is excellent careers guidance which will enable students to make the right choices for their chosen career path.
In addition to our extensive pastoral programme, we hold an annual Next Steps Conference with external speakers advising students on their post-18 options. We are fortunate to be supported in this event by Wiltshire College, local representatives from the business world, gap year companies and our own Careers Advisor. The aim of the day is for students to receive objective advice that will allow them to make informed choices regarding their next steps.
Furthermore, we have a highly personalised preparation programme for Oxbridge applicants which comprises mentoring sessions, focus clinics, workshop delivered by the School Liaison Officer for our link Oxbridge College (Merton College) and events supported by the West Wiltshire Alliance. The Sixth Form at St Augustine’s should equip students with a rich mixture of experiences which in turn will prepare them for an adult life of service to others.
