Careers Counselling

The choice of a suitable academic and professional career is not an easy task.  At the Grammar School, we guide students to follow the most suited career path for them based on their personality, academic skills and aptitude.  This emerges through stages after individual sessions with the school counsellor in year 3 and year 5 for their IGCSE and A ‘level selection. Suitable professions are discussed with the students and parents making sure they comprehend the nature and demands of each profession.

In Year 6 students are informed regarding university deadlines, applications, undergraduate degrees and personal statements.

In year 7 students complete the personal statement under the supervision of their English teachers and the counsellor. The UCAS application procedure is carried out through the school, which is registered as a UCAS Centre. The students of the Grammar School opt to further their studies mostly in the United Kingdom however a similar procedure is carried out for countries such as the Netherlands and the United States of America.

The Careers Counsellor will help students set realistic career goals and develop a plan to achieve them through collaboration with teachers, administrators, and parents to support students through subject choosing and university applications. Additionally, the Grammar School in collaboration with the European University offers the ARIADNE psychometric tool.
