Higher Education and Futures Guidance
We pride ourselves on knowing each and every pupil well so that every Sixth Former receives the opportunities and advice that will enable them to make informed and mature choices about their future.
Our Futures Department offers tailored guidance to the specific needs of our pupils. We aim to secure close links between school, universities and the business community as well as promoting the excellence of Withington Girls’ School and its pupils.
In the Sixth Form, the Futures Department aims to support pupils as much as possible and aid them in find the right path for them, whatever that may be. The Futures Department works in collaboration with pupils and offers information on all Higher Education choices in the UK and abroad, Gap Year opportunities, work experience and voluntary work programmes. Talks continue in a vast variety of career areas and UCAS choices. We also aim to secure close links between school, universities and the business community as well as promoting the excellence of Withington Girls’ School and our pupils.
Pupils are supported through the university application process and are encouraged to take advantage of every opportunity to make informed university choices and to complete applications of the highest quality. There are regular visits by Admission Tutors from a range of universities and girls are given expert individual help with writing Personal Statements, completing their UCAS application forms and preparing for interviews. We want every pupil to leave Withington feeling happy and confident about their future. More information on university support can be found in the Higher Education and UCAS Support section.
