Year 13 Post-18 Pathways

At St Paul’s Way Trust School, we are committed to supporting our learners in achieving their full potential, thus enabling them to pursue degrees and careers in the industry of their choice. At this time of year the school would, normally, be preparing to welcome our Year 13 students and their families to attend the annual Sixth Form Post-18 Pathways Event evening. This year, however, due to the current restrictions we are sharing resources with you online.

These pre-recorded talks from industry professionals and the Sixth Form Team outlining some of the exciting possibilities that lie ahead for your son/daughter.  These online resources are intended to raise your awareness of the choices your child will have to make in the coming months and ways in which you can support them throughout Year 13 and beyond.

We very much hope that the videos provided will give you a better understanding of possible post-18 pathways available to your son/daughter, and the ways in which the school will work to support them throughout the coming year. If you have accessed the materials on the school website and still have more questions, please do not hesitate to call or email the school reception who will be happy to support you.
