Careers & Leavers Destinations

Careers advice and guidance is incorporated throughout the school journey.

In the Sixth Form, we continue the process through 1:1 consultations, expert guest-speaker events, UCAS and careers fairs. We pride ourselves on our genuine ability to tailor our advice to suit pupils’ strengths and ambitions. In addition, our parent body and influential alumni help facilitate access to work experience and extra-curricular opportunities. Our open-minded approach to pupils’ ambitions mean that our pupils are prepared for university, apprenticeships, social enterprises and industry placement.

The school prepares pupils of all abilities well for relevant further educational experiences and future employment opportunities
