The Sixth Form is a time when significant decisions are made. Hurst is unashamedly ambitious for all its students, but the priority has to be that the next step after school is perfectly suited to each individual’s aspirations and aptitudes.
Hurst Sixth Form tutors are trained as executive life coaches, to invest time and expertise in drawing out an individual’s values and motivations, to help our young people perfectly match their plan to their true selves.
The majority of Hurst’s students choose to apply for a place at a leading British university, but the college also embraces the alternatives, from professional sport and the performing arts to entrepreneurship and aid work.
There is a specialist Careers and Higher Education department on the Sixth Form level of the college library, holding information on university options, careers and gap years. A dedicated team gives students invaluable support as they consider the areas that interest them and research the various options that are on offer.
Personal tutors spend one-to-one time with their tutees to discuss their personal statements, their aspirations and career choices. Students who are considering Oxbridge, STEM degrees or Medicine, Veterinary Science and Dentistry, are given additional support with visits to Oxford and Cambridge, tailored workshops, group discussion meetings and interview practice.
