Here at Rainhill Sixth Form we aim to support each individual student in their progression, whether their ambition is with a top University or a national apprenticeship, running their own company or going into the forces, we are here to help and advise from day one. We have a progression mentor who is a non-teaching member of staff on hand to help, progression booklets issued to all Year 12 students as part of induction and information on our website on pathways and destinations, along with resources to help.
Over time, we are proud to say, our destination measures have been positive and above national expectations and this is due to our planned support.
