Preparing for post-18 pathways
At Park High Sixth Form we look to ensure that students have full knowledge and understanding of the pathways available to them post-18 and encourage our students to pursue aspirational routes which include Higher Educational degrees and apprenticeships . This is delivered through a comprehensive tutor time and PSHCEe programme. We also make students aware of a range of offers and experiences across the year totally over 100. We also have a 'post-18 pathways' week in late June for Year 12s. This is a chance to hear from a number of guest speakers, visit Universities around the country and to start to develop their Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) applications with a focus on personal statements. We have also put together a list of events and opportunities exclusively for our Sixth Form students which includes, application guidance, competitions, courses, talks, webinars and more click here to find out more.
We believe Park High students will consequently be well prepared for their futures. Park High School is proud to have been awarded the prestigious Quality in Careers Standard, accredited by Investor in Careers since December 2018, in recognition of our outstanding CEIAG - Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance provision.

Park High School is a larger than average secondary school in North West London. It is a mixed, multi-ethnic school where the proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is high.
Park High Sixth Form was closed to students from the 6th of January to the 7th March. During term time alternative provision was made to students through timetabled and regular delivery of live lessons on Microsoft Teams alongside structured learning activities which could be completed independently. Students attended a Post-18 Pathways Week, with a mixture of virtual and in-person talks and visits. Internal practice examinations to help determine predicted grades were sat during the Summer term.
