From school years to final exams, eventually onto university, students frequently find themselves moving from one point to another during their academic careers. Square College's placement office, has 20 years of experience working with students. Have a look at the Progression and Further education tap maps below.

Moving up

Early Years (10+)

Moving up to secondary school at age 10 can be a big change for some students or just another day for others. Being a Secondary only school, we make sure that our Year 7 and 8 students, are accommodated and ready to tackle School life.

Year 9 (12+)

Students entering year 9, begin the next phase of their secondary school career, with a little less free time and more individual responsibility, year 9 students begin their journey towards higher education.

IGCSE (13+)

Students often recall year 10 and 11 as their best secondary years. Interests in sciences, arts and business begin to really develop at this stage. Square College encourages students to explore subject modules and read out of the curriculum.

Alevel (15+)

As A-level students are entering adulthood, the reigns are slowly taken off and their learning and study time become their sole responsibility. No one will chase after you at university, this self management is something we teach students to value.

SAT's (15+)

The American alternative to A-levels, when our students find their opportunities in the USA, it’s important that we equip them with the tools and qualifications to make the most of their time.

Summer (All ages)

Students in this program fall into a number of categories, holiday based revision sessions, or students whose exams are held in Oct/Nov, or students who are abroad and would like to take lessons over-the-web from our e-platform.

20 Years in Education: Going Further

HG placements paved the way for Square College to develop and grow into what it is today. We have not forgotten where we came from and we recognise it’s an advantage that we respect, develop and evolve. We are fortunate to place numerous students year by year, into top university, college and school programs around the world. That student could be you, your daughter or son, brother, sister, aunt, uncle or even grandparents!

We’re working on a student focused platform and we can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime, enjoy the placement tap map below. You can use the “speak to us” button to get in touch with our Admissions and Placements office.

How it works:
  • Pathway
  • Goals

Our students have access to a placement office with over 20 years of experience. We meet with students to align their pathways with their career goals, find out what it takes to end up there and begin the process to the next level of their academic careers. Check the next tabs for a break down of the process.

Important information:
  • What requirements are to be met?
  • Time frame.

We maximise the course choice our students have by getting their bids in early. Understanding and fulfilling the necessary requirements to begin the application process is something Square College takes pride in.


What you need to know:
  • Certificate handling
  • Information requests
  • Medicals

Due to the red tape between countries, having a number of different certificates helps verify identity, age and state of origin. We also handle the aspect of “information request” some organisations require proof of no criminal activity, in order for the student to be accepted onto a course.


  • University
  • Pre and post departure support

With experience comes connections, Square college has facilitated many partnerships over the years, with institutions like the University of Chester, the University of East Anglia and so many more. Students are free to pick anywhere they want to study, we can handle it. Find out about all the universities we are partnered with, here.

We also handle the accommodation and departure of our students. From finding the most accessible places to live, being picked up from the airport and even having a guide.

We offer:
  • Visa processing
  • International documentation

A long time has been spent perfecting this aspect of the pathways process. We can guarantee that our students now and the students who are currently studying abroad can stand behind the delivery of this service by our expert office.
