- 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

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.
