Central Futures at Central Foundation Boys’ School’s Sixth Form
Central Futures Career Programme
Central Futures is our careers programme and a large part of this is designed to prepare you for your future beyond Central Foundation Boys’ School. Whether that be continuing your studies at university, looking for an apprenticeship or going straight into employment, we aim to help all students develop the right qualifications, skills and experiences to be successful.
The Central Futures programme will help you to:
- Identify all of the different career routes available
- Decide on the best pathway, whether that be university, employment or apprenticeship.
- Develop the qualifications, skills and experience needed to access university or employment, and be successful.
We have on-site support from the Access Project and a link with the world-renowned law firm Slaughter & May. This means that every pupil in our 6th form can apply for 1-1 tuition in their A-levels, totally free of charge. These sessions are taught by Russell group graduates who have a 2-1 or a first-class degree in the subject you would like support with. Beyond that, you have regular academic mentoring sessions to support, guide and motivate. Those outside voices are key to our pupils’ success.
We have dedicated Oxbridge and medicine societies, which provide two years of guidance to position you for success. You receive further mentoring, detailed support with personal statements, mock interviews and the benefit of our partnerships with prestigious private schools Wycombe Girls, who visited us just yesterday and Haberdasher Aske who have been invaluable with their mock interview support for our large number of Oxbridge and Medicine applicants this year. This combination of support means that pupils have consistently gained places at some of the most prestigious universities in the world.
