We are committed to ensuring that all our students have every opportunity which is available to them when they leave Cromwell. 2021 was a superb year for our Year 13 students with a huge rise in the number of our sixth form students applying to university, 75% of the Year 13 cohort in total applied and over half of these were to Russell group universities including Durham, University of Sheffield and the University of Nottingham. Cromwell Sixth form students are reading Pharmacy to Astrophysics, Archaeology to Fine Art, Biomedicine and Law, to mention only a few. One of our students is also applying to study in the USA following a gap year.

Those not going to university are pursuing varied and exciting careers including; the RAF, joining the police apprenticeship scheme, local employment at ALS Chatteris and engineering apprenticeships at Stainless Metalcraft.

Moving on ... Life After Cromwell

This is an exciting time and there are many options open to you. Whilst at Cromwell, you will receive quality impartial Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to help you to make the right choices for post 18. Your tutor will support you and you will have access to our Level 6 qualified Guidance Advisor. In addition you will have the opportunity to attend various events such as the UCAS higher education exhibition and ‘An Introduction to Higher Education’ workshop (at Cromwell delivered by Anglia Ruskin staff) which includes talks on how to apply to university, personal statements and student finance.

All Sixth Form students have the opportunity to attend the Cromwell Careers fair. Here you will be able to find out more about apprenticeships and meet many local employers.
