At Bingley Grammar School we pride ourselves on the success Sixth Form students have in terms of meaningful career plans.

We have a great track record in helping our students access high performing Higher Education institutions. Over the last few years students have gone on to study for careers in Medicine, Dentistry, Science and Engineering, Business and Finance, Law, Nursing and Midwifery, Teaching or more specific subject degrees such as History, Geography, Psychology, Languages, Music and Sport to name just a few.

IMG_0726Our students have successfully accessed a diverse range of high performing Higher Education establishments. In particular, we are proud of our success in helping students read for degrees at Russell Group universities. Applications to Lancaster, Newcastle, Sheffield, Leeds and York are currently very popular. However, we also try very hard to help match HE institutions to students.

To support our students in this complicated process a dedicated set of experienced Sixth Form staff and knowledgeable tutors help guide and support them. We have previously arranged "progress days" for Yr12 students with "guest" admissions tutors as well as past students sharing their experiences and offering inspiration. Also, we have a Higher Education event especially for parents to help support and guide. Finally, we make full use of our close partnership with UNIFROG an online support tool to enable students to perfectly tailor their course choices in light of their own career aspirations and academic performance.
