Where our students go
The Parker Academy and DSLV are both experienced at supporting students with UCAS applications and are proud to have students go on to study at prestigious institutions including Oxbridge and other Russell Group Universities.
All students who want to attend university are supported to do so. Students have gone on to read a wide range of subjects including Medicine, Chemistry, Psychology, History, Sports and Exercise Science, and Business Management.
In Year 12 all students are able to participate on a trip to a local university to introduce them to the vast range of courses and options at university. Further support includes talks from a range of universities on student life, student finance and advice on how to choose a course.
In the summer term there is an opportunity for students to take part in a two day UCAS event where they learn about the process, start to write their application and attend the UCAS exhibition at the NEC. Parents are also invited to an evening presentation supporting them in their understanding of
the UCAS process.
All students who apply to courses where an interview is required are supported by mock interviews with members of the Senior Leadership Team.
Where are they now?

Not all learners wish to go to university when leaving Sixth Form. We are equally committed to supporting students who apply for apprenticeships or other training schemes.
Students are supported through career interviews, writing CVs and mock interviews. Furthermore students are encouraged to attend careers and apprenticeship fairs
