Year 13 Destinations
The breadth and flexibility of Walthamstow Hall’s Sixth Form programme, combined with expert teaching, high expectations and tailored higher education and careers guidance enables our students to be ambitious and successful in their post Sixth Form choices.
Over 90% of our students progress into Higher Education each year with the vast majority of these final destinations being to Russell Group Universities. In recent years, students have also been successful in securing places on competitive Higher Level Apprenticeship courses.
Our students are encouraged to explore carefully the wide range of excellent courses available at different institutions. A dedicated programme of advice and guidance for individual students at each stage of the UCAS application process ensures that our students are successful in receiving a good range of offers and make excellent final choices. Preparation for application includes talks from university admissions officers, events dedicated to Oxbridge and other specialist applications, interviews with the Head of Sixth Form for every student and ‘mock interviews’, especially important for medicine, veterinary and Oxbridge applications. The majority of Walthamstow Hall students receive offers from all 5 of their university choices with the vast majority securing places at their first-choice university.
On results day the Sixth Form team and Head of Department are on hand to congratulate students, as well as perhaps to advise and assist those who want to change course, explore other options or navigate UCAS clearing.
The Sixth Form team’s dedication to their students doesn’t end at the end of Year 13. Students who wish to make a PQA (Post Qualification Application) to university in Year 14 or beyond are offered assistance by the School.
One year Art or Drama Foundation courses are also popular options for some students, who study them before embarking on a variety of other courses.
Students who opt to take a Gap Year are provided with advice on how to gain valuable volunteering and work experience to enhance deferred or future university applications or career choices.
