Our dedicated careers service gives pupils the opportunity to fully consider which path is best suited to them. Most pupils continue their education at Scottish universities, however, significant numbers regularly gain places at Oxford, Cambridge, and other UK universities.
For pupils not attending university, we explore a range of options with them including Further Education Institutions and Modern and Graduate level apprenticeships.
