Each Sixth Form student is treated as an individual at West Kirby and our experienced Sixth Form tutors support every student through whatever pathway they choose - university, vocational course, employment or apprenticeships.
West Kirby was cited as being in the top 5 in the UK for the success of their students receiving and accepting offers from their first choice institution. This is testament to the high calibre students we have and the appropriateness of their university choices in relation to their talents.
A wide range of courses and careers are undertaken by West Kirby students. The traditional professions such as medicine, law, architecture and veterinary science are well presented. However, students also embark on courses in film and graphic design and illustration, international fashion and promotion and mental health nursing.
Some students have successfully taken up exciting apprenticeship opportunities with British Aerospace, the Crown Prosecution Service, Rathbones and Lloyds Banking Group. Apprenticeships are becoming an increasingly attractive proposition where school leavers can develop skills, gain qualifications and not have the debt that come with traditional higher education routes.
Our advice is reach for the stars. The sky is the limit!
