Preparation For Life

Coming to Tettenhall College will lead you on journey of self-discovery, learning and enrichment. It will provide you with an opportunity to explore, consider, mature and most especially grow.

The majority of our students go on to some of the very best universities both in the UK and internationally. We are enormously proud of their achievements and the endeavour this requires. Much coveted degree apprenticeships, vocational pathways and entry into the world of work are also aspired to and achieved. Whichever route our students take (and these routes are many and varied) we know that a Tettenhall College education is a vehicle that will take our students on to a continuing journey of new life experiences, career development and personal success.

Old Tettenhallians are located around the globe carving out wonderful lives for themselves and giving service to others.  Whether they be medics, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs, charity workers, finance specialists, artists, performers – to name just some of the routes taken – an Old Tettenhallian is full of generosity, gratitude, ongoing ambition and and humility….And of course, spirit and good humour.

Whilst A Level results are clearly vital, universities and employers are looking for more than just academic success. To succeed in the outside world, people need to be resourceful and resilient, prepared to take the initiative as well as working in a team.

Our careers programme, with its range of visits, speakers, interviews, placements and advice, is designed to help our pupils consider the wide range of options that are possible after A Levels so that they can make informed decisions about what to do next.

We also offer a challenging Enrichment Programme, with a mixture of activities that will stretch our pupils intellectually and make them assess their own strengths. Sixth Formers also have the opportunity to adopt leadership roles such a prefect or house captain and the inter-personal and organisational skills involved in these positions are extremely valuable.

The strength in the community and qualities of the Sixth Form are very evident in that many return as Old Tettenhallians, to not only to see the staff and friends they have made, but also to give talks on their university course or career path, with some running interactive workshops focusing on the skills employers are looking for.
