Choosing the next step after Sixth Form is a big decision, which is why we offer a lot of support to each Sixth Former.

One of our strengths at Derby Grammar School is that tutors and subject teachers know each pupil individually; their character and their academic ability. This helps us to offer the right advice and guidance as they plan where life after A levels may take them.

Most of our Sixth Formers decide to go on to University. We help each with their application and personal statement and have a specialist Higher Education advisor to work with them through the whole university selection and application process.

However, some pupils decide that Higher Education isn’t for them and they wish to follow a different route. We help explore the options available and support them as they look for their employment, apprenticeship or whatever else they may choose.
