Higher Education & Careers

St. Clement Danes provides high quality, individualised support and advice for all students about Further Education, Higher Education and Careers, with great success.  Regularly, 80% of our Year 13 students gain places at University, with the vast majority of other students gaining entrance onto a chosen alternative, whether this be employment or an alternative Higher Education pathway.

The Sixth Form at St. Clement Danes boasts a team of dedicated staff who guide students in their Higher Education applications. Miss Ryan (Director of Sixth Form and Assistant Headteacher), Mr Turner (Assistant Director of Sixth Form) and Mrs. Edwards (Assistant Director of Sixth Form) oversee the process from student research into courses and institutions at the beginning of Year 12 to accepting offers at the end of Year 13. UCAS application information is delivered to students through a programme of meetings, Personal Development sessions and outside speakers.

Students in Year 11 or 13  who prefer to follow a route of employment or apprenticeship or further education are supported through the application process by the school’s Careers Team led by Mrs Payne.

  • Business Mentoring for selected students: 6-8 sessions with one of our Business mentors, professionals from a range of companies and institutions who come into school to provide advice and guidance about the world of work
  • Work shadowing days for Year 12 students
  • Morrisby profiling- psychometric testing for career aptitudes, with follow-up interviews
