Within the School's nurturing environment I was provided with countless opportunities and support to pursue the career of my choice.

Higher Education Options
There are many reasons to consider university. Not only can a degree offer a higher lifetime earnings potential and a greater choice of more rewarding career paths, but the university experience often provides unparalleled opportunities for personal growth and independence. Every year, between 80-90% of our Upper Sixth students decide that university is the right next step for them, so WGS provides an extensive programme of education, information and guidance relating to Higher Education throughout the Sixth Form journey. All students have access to qualified, one-to-one advice throughout the application process and beyond.
Universities all have their own set of specialisms and each offers a unique learning environment. Our students are coached to weigh up their own needs, priorities and preferences so that they are making fully informed decisions about where to continue their education and choose the 'best' university for their needs. Every year we are pleased and proud to see the vast majority of our applicants are successful in gaining places at their preferred choice of institutions. Those who decide that university is not the right destination for them are fully supported in their pursuit of alternatives, be it an apprenticeship, volunteering or acquiring work experience.
“I had great experiences and encouragement at WGS to pursue a career in theatre and performance. My involvement in the School’s drama productions was a great grounding for later professional training.”
