In Year 12, pupils undergo a full university induction programme and have the opportunity to attend various higher education-focused events. These events are attended by the vast majority of the leading universities and gives pupils the opportunity to speak directly with admissions tutors. Specific times are also dedicated to university preparation and campus visits.
Wellingtonians will also be supported in their career aspirations by our Careers and Higher Education Department, which will oversee work placements, careers lectures, university fairs, and gap year opportunities.
