Year 11 Transition

Here at Saint Paul’s we provide our students with the opportunity of applying to our feeder colleges, Loreto and Xaverian (both Ofsted Outstanding providers). We also have strong relationships with many other excellent providers of FE and apprenticeships both locally and nationwide. Throughout their time at Saint Paul’s, students will have multiple opportunities to visit  FE providers/colleges, attend workshops, road shows and seminars, with guest speakers.

College Roadshows

Year 11 students from Saint Paul’s will be able to gain an insight into what college life is like when they attend presentations by the local colleges. The presentations will provide them with the opportunity to learn more about the colleges and the courses offered there.

The presentations will be aimed at Year 11 students who are considering their options after finishing school. The students will be able to discover more about the courses which are available at the colleges and learn about the skills and qualifications they would need to secure a place on these courses.
