"I feel confident about leaving school because I’ve had such good support and advice about what to do next."

Making the right decisions

Confused about what to do next? You needn’t be. Stop and think carefully about the courses that are right for you, and why you want to take them. Think about what you are good at, what you enjoy doing, and what you want to do when you leave the Sixth Form. Do some research and talk to other people – your friends, teachers, family and older students can help you make sense of what to do next. Above all, come and see us. We can give you in-depth advice and explain all your options. Good luck in your exams, and we look forward to talking to you soon.

UCAS: Universities and Colleges Admissions Service

From the Hillsyde News, March 2007
Year 13 students have now finished the time consuming process of applying for university and other higher education colleges to start the next stage in their academic career. Students are now reaping the rewards by being offered places at their chosen universities! University will be a life changing experience for our students. They will experience a brand new learning environment, they will meet lots of new people from different walks of life and for some this will mean leaving home and living independently.
