Tonbridge School is unusual in that it employs a full time Universities and Careers Adviser, who is also assisted by other members of staff who have specialist knowledge of particular careers, universities or subjects.
The boys also receive considerable guidance from their Housemasters, who build up extensive experience and play a major part in shaping and directing boys' ideas about their futures.
The University and Careers offices and library are open all day in term time and have a suite of computers which are linked to the school network. There is a wide selection of literature on careers and all forms of higher and further education and gap years.
There is a structured careers and higher education programme which starts at the end of the Novi Year when boys are choosing the GCSEs. The main focus is in the 3rd Year and Sixth Form.
