Following their time at Ashington High School, students follow a variety of paths. Many continue their education at university, some choose to enter their chosen profession whilst others opt for a gap year, either to broaden their experience of the world or to take a little more time to decide upon the direction they wish to take.
We support students in this decision-making process in a number of ways. For those who choose university, we make prospectuses available, organise day trips, invite representatives of universities to speak and offer personal advice about possible choices. Once choices have been made we offer a comprehensive support programme for the completion of the UCAS process. Following the receipt of final A level results, we continue to offer support to students in finalising the places they have chosen.
For students who decide that university is not for them, we offer the same level of support and guidance. Careers interviews are organised and support given in the application process. Where possible, we will help to organise work experience placements and do all that we can to help students place themselves in their chosen career.
