Life in the Sixth Form
Life in the Sixth Form has been designed to help students achieve their career goals and prepare them for life after The Crest Academy Sixth Form.
Each student pathway balances four key components:
1. Career Aspirations:
Students are provided with impartial information, advice, guidance and mentoring to ensure they are successful at the end of their course of study. Students will have the ability to make informed decisions about university, employment or an apprenticeship, offering the potential to enter a diverse range of careers.
2. Developing Skills for the Future.
At The Crest Academy, we focus on enhancing your resilience, research and revision skills – teaching you how to revise and how to cope with the pressures of assignments, tight deadlines and examinations. Our study programmes also develop your English and communication skills as well as your technical and numerical abilities.
3. Work experience
All students will be support with information and guidance to participate in meaningful and purposeful work experience placements. These opportunities will be invaluable and will add great value to CVs and support UCAS Applications.
Students will have the opportunity to take part in activities that contribute to your wider development and support your academic studies. Examples of our enrichment activities include:
• Visits to Russell Group universities including the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford
• Career’s masterclasses delivered from industry professionals.
• NCS Summer Programme
• Wings of Hope Achievement Award
• Zenobia Scholars mentoring and coaching programme.
