University Guidance & Support

UCAS, University and Beyond

At Pitsford School we are proud to have an unusually broad and deep expertise in advising our students in terms of careers and university applications. We have a separate Careers Department which combines experience with being rigorously up-to-date. In addition, when appropriate we source and facilitate external support for our students to afford them a competitive advantage in what is a challenging economic landscape.

We offer bespoke advice on subject choices at year 9 into year 10 exploiting our very experienced academic staff, undertaking a full and open dialogue with students and parents.

For entry into Sixth Form, the Headmaster meets with every student to discuss progress, career and university ambitions, and subject choices which can be made to support application.

For all university applications, the Headmaster writes every school reference and meets with every applicant one-to-one to support them in their application and to advise on content and strategy.

Pitsford School is very proud of its record of helping nearly every student secure their first choice university and course.
