Careers and Employability
The school careers provision is designed to support students to help them make appropriate choices about their future.
Students are provided with a range of activities through assemblies and their PSHE lessons to help make decisions about whom they wish to become and more importantly, what they need to do to achieve these goals or aspirations.
To support the curriculum and pastoral careers education, a Careers Advisor is contracted from ‘The Modern Careers Education and Guidance Services’. They currently work on Thursdays and are based in the conference room. For more information please click here.

Independent Careers Advisor
Evaluation and individual careers plans are constructed as a result of the interviews and kept on file for future interviews.
To further support students there are visits to universities as well as focused assemblies or events for GCSE Options or Post-16 pathways.
As part of your child’s careers programme and employability skills development, students are required to do one week of work experience during Year 10, this takes place in July.
We believe work experience is highly valuable to our students, giving them the opportunity to see what the working world is like. They learn how places of work are organised, what work processes are and that employer expectations are very different to school. We feel this experience is vital to our students’ development into young adults.
