Higher Education & Careers

Predicting A Level Grades

At Prior Park College the teachers and the Sixth Form team predict A Level grades based on mock examination grades, results of assessments taken throughout the Lower Sixth year and their professional judgement and experience. Staff know their students very well and are in regular dialogue with them about their general progress and their UCAS predictions. 

Careers Education

Careers Education begins in F3 and in the subsequent years covers a range of topics and is designed to develop both a clearer understanding of pupil's own skills and abilities but also the world of work. It aims to equip them with the transferable skills necessary to be effective throughout their working life in this ever changing environment.

During the Sixth Form, all students are prepared for Higher Education. Here are just some ways in which we do this:

Careers Team

Mrs Caroline Hiorns, Careers Advisor

Mr John Fitzpatrick, Careers Coordinator

Ms Amy Colqhohoun, Head of Sixth Form (Academic)

Ms Laura Young, Head of Sixth Form (Pastoral)

Individual Careers Appointments with our Careers Adviser can be requested and booked through Mr Fitzpatrick.
