Luckley offers a range of support for careers and higher education guidance. In the Lower School (KS3), girls will receive advice on careers issues as part of the Personal, Social, Health, Education (PSHE) programme. Speakers are regularly asked into the School to talk about careers issues. This support will continue into the Senior School (KS4) and Sixth Form (KS5).
All girls are offered individual interviews with the Head of Careers from Year 9 through to Year 13, enabling the School to support and track each student in their decision making about careers and higher education. Work related learning is seen as an important part of a young person's educational development and all girls will be supported in finding a work experience placement in Year 11 and again in Year 12.
All girls will benefit from membership of the Independent School's Careers Organisation (ISCO). This will enable them to sit a range of psychometric tests and be provided with individual feedback with an ISCO advisor to discuss their results.
Sixth Form students will take part in a range of Higher Education events including a residential trip to visit a number of university campuses.
Nearly all girls go on to study at University when they leave Luckley. The individual support that girls receive in the Sixth Form is well reflected in the extensive range of courses and institutions that girls go on to study at. Last year (2010 leavers), the vast majority of the girls managed to secure their first choices at University and all of the remainder their second choice places.
