Pathways after A Levels -Taking a Gap Year

'At the end of Year 13 a gap year is one of the options open to students before embarking on a degree course, apprenticeship or into full time employment.

Many students consider taking a gap year to have a break from studies, to complete work experience, to spend time volunteering or simply to see the world before University or employment.  Whatever the reason, taking a gap year can be very beneficial.

There are advantages and disadvantages when considering a gap year and its important that you research this well before you commit.

Below are three articles about taking a Gap Year and what the pros and cons are:

Then have a look at these first class scholarships available to students who would like to study at US High School after their A Levels.
