Sixth Form pupils at PGS are given outstanding support and advice to help them achieve their aspirations.

Just under 90% of pupils win a place at their first or insurance choice university and we have frequent success in helping our pupils secure offers for prestigious degree apprenticeship schemes
with organisations such as Dyson, Rolls Royce and Unilever. Each pupil is assigned a Specialist Subject Advisor who will advise and guide you comprehensively through the application process. Our dedicated Careers and Universities Department coordinate the process and organise hugely valuable events such as our annual universities fair where over forty institutions and training
providers are represented.

We run a Year 12 UCAS Day in July, which is dedicated to ensuring that your university applications are as strong as they can be.
