Careers

Careers offer

As our pupils move through the school we want to ensure that they are supported to make successful educational and career choices.

Other information is delivered through PSHE lessons, in tutor sessions and a programme of visits from professionals supporting our projects and providing input on their careers, such as a visit by the local MP recently.

We will be updating this information throughout the year with specific information as we go along and adding details about the impact that this is having with our pupils and parents.

It is important that student look at various options at GCSE and consider the possible paths that their choice can lead to. It is essential that students have a broad range of subjects and focus on working towards a strong core in English, Maths and Science which will lead to a wide range of opportunities after GCSE.


We highly recommend that students and parents look at the following websites for further help and support.
