Careers Information and Guidance

Please follow this link to information for Year 11 students that are due to leave  in the summer of 2017, highlighting local further education options and sign posting young people to other appropriate alternative post 16 options that can support them moving forward. 

Please follow this link to the presentation made on 27th January 2016 regarding Post 16 Advice for Year 11

Planning for the future is so important, and we aim to give all students the best information and guidance available to help them make their choices. From Year 8 all the way through to Y13 students have time in their curriculum to develop skills and gather information and experience to best prepare them for their next step, be that making the right Key Stage 4 Option choices, picking their A-levels, selecting college courses, or even finding an apprenticeship.

Key to this is our own full time Careers Officer, Mrs K Burroughs. Mrs Burroughs arranges for every student in Year 11 to have an individual 1-to-1 session to discuss their intentions for Post-16 education, as well as co-ordinating the ‘mock’ application and interview process that each student experiences.

You can contact Mrs Burroughs via the link for more information, or to arrange a further 1-to-1 session.
