Post-TGS Choices Support

Students have extensive guidance and support whatever pathway they choose after TGS, whether it be university, gap year or employment.

Higher Education

Over 90 per cent of students from TGS go straight into Higher Education (see University Destinations 2018). We are justly proud of the quality of our applications, and universities comment on the strength of TGS students’ personal statements and the accuracy of our predicted grades.

A detailed programme of support is provided throughout the university application process, that includes:

  • Ongoing talks, assemblies and advice from the TGS team.

  • Talks and workshops from visiting university admissions tutors.

  • Careers Day.

  • Parents’ UCAS Evening.

  • Structured support with UCAS applications and personal statements. All forms and personal statements are rigorously checked by at least one member of the Senior Leadership Team.

  • Destination Specific support for Oxbridge applicants and aspiring medics, dentists and vets (see below).

  • Help with work experience placements.

Other Pathways

Students who wish to apply for employment or undertake a gap year are also closely supported.

The careers section of the Library is full of useful resources, and we purchase independent impartial careers advice and guidance from CXK Ltd who offer one to one interviews and group sessions on a range of topics including Alternatives to University and Study Abroad.

We also help with work experience placements, CV writing and job references.

Destination Specific Support

I’m so grateful for the UCAS support [TGS] gave me earlier this year. I certainly wouldn’t have been successful without it and I’m really looking forward to the next step – university and beyond.
