We expect all of our students to remain at HVS for seven years and have the highest aspirations of them in terms of University and employment. We will offer pastoral support for the application process to Higher Education and regular careers advice throughout their seven years at the School.
Our aim is to ensure every student has the opportunity to experience a challenging but appropriate curriculum. The KS5 curriculum will allow student choice, progression to university and ensure each student has an appropriate pathway that allows them to reach their potential. Students will be assisted to make appropriate choices based on data and individual guidance from the School in consultation with their families.
The School is aware that with rapid national changes to KS5, we can only outline our broad intentions but we will offer a range of A-levels and vocational equivalents. Preliminary work will be done with Year 10 to explore students’ likely choices, so that curriculum options will effectively engage their interests and play to the strengths of our staff.
