Pupils also have access to careers and university guidance counsellors who can answer questions and guide pupils towards universities and courses that suit their interests and aspirations. Pupils are also given access to the online platform, BridgeU, from grade 8, which allows them to document all their school experiences and conduct research into universities, courses and careers.
Throughout their time at Huili High School, pupils develop an excellent understanding of how to apply to university and are ably supported by a team of counsellors, advisers and grade leaders and house tutors, who ensure that pupils make the choices right for them and their future. At each stage of the options process and university application process, pupils have opportunities for conversations that allow them to ask questions and think about the choices they are making. Parents play a key part in this process as they develop their own understanding of courses, universities and requirements in order to be able to best support their child.
A key component of the university advice and guidance programme is access to universities and different careers. During their time in High School pupils have access to speakers from a range of careers so that they can develop their understanding of the world of work. Similarly, university fairs are organised and pupils and parents are informed of events that are coming up online or in the local area.
Successful applicants are recognised and celebrated by the school and they have access to a range of opportunities befitting the prestige of the scholarship they have been awarded. Recipients of scholarships are looked upon very favourably by universities around the world and pupils who are awarded scholarships can include this on their university applications in the future; it will also be mentioned in recommendation letters written by the school.
