Student Futures at HASU6

Our goal is to provide students with the tools they need to lead fulfilled and happy lives, whatever pathway they choose to take after they leave us. Studying at HASU6 will allow students to gain the academic qualifications and, crucially, the personal skills they require to continue their journey - whether that is at university, doing an apprenticeship or starting their career.

Exploring the opportunities on offer after leaving school, while exciting, can also be daunting. Throughout their time at HASU6 students will receive a comprehensive careers programme that will help them evaluate the options open to them as well as ensuring they are prepared for the pathway they choose. Features of the careers programme include:

  • University counselling sessions
  • UCAS and application support
  • University visits and trips
  • Regular access to experts from a variety of backgrounds
  • Mentoring from professionals
  • Lectures from industry experts
  • Support with Medicine and Oxbridge applications
  • Targeted enrichment offerings

We have access to a range of support from across the Harris Federation, including applications to universities through UCAS, applications for Apprenticeships, and CV-building and interview workshops for those that are looking to enter the workplace.
