A well designed careers program allows students to develop their knowledge, confidence and skills that enables them to progress effortlessly into either further education or into the workplace. The programme also allows them sustain employability throughout their lives.
There are 4 main foci for our careers program:
- PSHE curriculum for every year level from year 7 to year 13
- Work experience for every student by post 18
- KS4 students having a clear careers plan when finishing GCSE
- More parental involvement in career choices

Careers Advice and Guidance
Careers advice and Guidance is given independently as we employ the services of a qualified Careers Advisor from the Education Development Trust. The advisor is available to see all students during the drop in session at break on Thursday and Friday. Additionally the careers advisor allows students to make appointments for more in depth careers advice it the meeting lasting 30-45 minutes. Within that time a personalised career plan of action is created for the student.
