Careers

The school programme of Careers Education and Guidance (CEG) aims to contribute to the development of pupils as individuals through:-

  • increasing their awareness of their present and future choices
  • enhancing their skills in dealing with transitions
  • enabling their access to Higher Education
  • developing their employability
  • improving their key skills
  • contributing to raising their achievement and motivation

Developing students’ understanding and knowledge of possible future pathways is an important aspect of our curriculum. 

We work with students in every year group to help them develop an understanding of the wide range of possibilities beyond school and help them make informed choices for options at GCSE, A level and beyond.

This includes work covered in tutor time classes as well as talks, visits and other Careers events organised by our Pastoral teams. 

Our aim is to inspire students to always aim high and challenge themselves to ‘Be the best version of themselves’

We also use the services of independent careers specialists who can offer individual guidance for students and advise them on the range of opportunities available post 16 and post 18.  

All students in year 11, 12 and 13 are offered a careers interview.  Some students in other year groups may also benefit from individual specialist careers advice.

Please contact the school if you would like to know more about the careers advice and guidance options available for your child.
