Student Destinations 2017

Careers and Progression from Benton Park

At Benton we believe in every student fulfilling their potential and this relentless drive for success is just as noticeable in our hopes and expectations for students’ next steps as it is during lessons. We have a very proud record of students achieving places at top Universities and positions with top employers.

Every possible option is catered for as part of our progression guidance and as opportunities outside of University begin to mirror those inside it we are always wary of the absolute importance of correct, timely, supportive intervention that is based on the students’ needs and aspirations.  The charts below shows the range of destinations and different paths our students in both Years 11 and 13 followed in 2017.
