Virtual Career Cluster Event: Gap Years

We are delighted to announce our next ‘remote’ Career Cluster event, exploring the topic of Gap Years. The event is open to everyone and will take place on the Zoom webinar platform on Tuesday, 24th November between 1830 and 2030.

Registering is essential: https://bit.ly/YSGapYears 

There is often a big disconnect between the imagined projection and the actual reality of a Gap Year. They can be enormously varied in terms of their focus, location and even purpose. Evidence demonstrates that students who have taken a gap year before university assume above average levels of leadership positions at university, and also secure a higher proportion of First Class degrees.

This event will be devoted to exploring the arguments for taking and benefits from experiencing a Gap Year and will seek to answer all of your questions and more, such as:

  • Why take a Gap Year?
  • Is now the right time to consider it?
  • How do I organise it?
  • How much do Gap Years typically cost?
  • What about the arguments against a Gap Year?

We will be joined by a leading Gap Year Provider who will give a short presentation, followed by a Q&A session. The event will also present a number of former pupils who will join us to explain the process, nature and benefits of their experience, as well as take your questions.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the practical aspects of a Gap Year and ask experts and former pupils all of your questions. If you are interested in attending on Tuesday, 24th November between 1830 and 2030, please register here.

Open Morning: Nursery, Prep, Senior School and Sixth Form  For families with children aged 3-18 years. Join us 9am - 12noon on Saturday 28th September to explore the fantastic opportunities at Yarm!
