Developing students’ understanding and knowledge of possible future pathways is an important aspect of our curriculum.
Students in every year group experience a range of talks and activities to help them develop an understanding of the wide range of possibilities beyond school and help them make informed choices for options at GCSE and A level.
This includes work covered through our PSE and Citizenship classes, as well as talks, visits and other careers events organised by the school.
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.
All students in year 11 and 12 are offered a careers interview. Some students in other year groups may also benefit from individual specialist careers advice.
