Students from Rye College choose a variety of destinations for their post-16 education. An increasing percentage of students are opting for level 3 courses (A levels and equivalent) or if they choose a vocational or trade pathway these are level 2 courses with progression through to level 3. In the past 3 years destinations have included:

- Ark Alexandra 6th form
- Plumpton College
- Varndean College

It is important that the CEIAG programme includes opportunities to analyse and discuss the destinations, performance and progression routes of former students. Destinations data is collected and shared with the appropriate authorities and agencies as required by Statutory Guidance requirements.
Destinations data is used to assess the impact of our careers programme and to identify new targets and objectives for improving the careers programme as a result of the evaluation. Data is collected from students regarding their intended destinations, September Guarantee (where they have received offers from) and their final destinations from enrolment. This is obtained through the post-16 application process and is produced by Aspire East Sussex.
Internally we are able to monitor intended destinations during the applications process and use impartial careers guidance to ensure that students are aspirational in their future plans and that they apply for the relevant courses Post-16. This is later compared to final destinations data as a way of analysing student progression. It is also useful when it comes to comparing year groups and evaluating CEIAG provision.
The graphs below show our destinations data.
One way of developing aspirations is to provide students with examples of what can be achieved. We are keen to hear from our alumni, so if you are a former student who is willing to share information about your journey through education and beyond, we would love to hear from you.
We would also like to create a new alumni display in school and a link on this website so would be grateful if you could send in a photo of yourself with the following information:
- Dates attended Thomas Peacocke/Rye College
- Route through education
- Previous jobs
- Current job
If you could also specify if you are able to come into school to attend event or give talks to our students, we would be very grateful.
