Careers & Higher Education

The Sixth Form prepares you for post-18 life effectively, whilst having fun along the way.

An essential part of our Sixth Form programme is ensuring that you are confident and prepared for leaving school; whether you are going on to higher education or into the workplace we are here to help and support you.

We will provide you with access to:

  • Expert support and guidance on UCAS applications
  • Bespoke tutor sessions and mentoring
  • Information events for you and your parents to attend, for example, the UCAS & Student Finance Evening
  • Support with university applications, including workshops on personal statements
  • Preparation for university admissions tests
  • Additional preparation and support for those considering Oxbridge, careers in medicine, the military and other vocational careers
  • Support in creating your CV and workplace and apprenticeship applications
  • Career Spotlight events with external speakers and members of our alumnae

Our former students have gone on to pursue a broad range of careers, including medicine, dentistry, engineering, education, accountancy, armed forces, digital consultancy, law, project management, business development, architecture, advertising, HR, marketing, graphic design, the performing arts (to name a few), working for small businesses and international corporations as well as starting up on their own.  Have a look here to see some of their stories.

University work is a lot more independent which St Gabriel's Sixth Form prepares you for.

After seeing my results, I just wanted to go and hug all my teachers and I could not stop smiling. Going to Cambridge has been my dream for years and it is such a relief to know all my hard work has paid off.
