HIGHER EDUCATION & CAREERS

We believe that the journey should not stop on leaving the Royal Hospital School and great emphasis is placed on supporting, guiding and taking a real interest in what our pupils are doing at the age of 25.

Careers advice starts from Year 9 when pupils are helped to make subject choices, identify career options, conduct self-evaluations and research suitable Higher Education courses. Continuous guidance is then provided throughout Years 10 to 13 with impartial careers advice, interview training, work experience, help with UCAS applications and writing personal statements, and a series of careers talks, suppers and an annual Careers Fair. In their final term, Year 13 pupils are also given invaluable advice on the use of LinkedIn, online profile building and networking opportunities.

Great emphasis is placed on supporting, guiding and taking a real interest in what our pupils are doing at the age of 25. For some this may be three or four years after completing a first degree but for others this may be after following a higher apprenticeship scheme, through which they have gained superb on-the-job experience as well as a fully funded degree or other qualification. Recent leavers have followed such schemes with Jaguar Land Rover, John Lewis, Barclays and PwC.
