Careers Support

Support is available through our web site under the 'Students -Your Career' pages: information on career events, college and university open days, apprenticeships, CV writing, current jobs and much more......

As part of the PSHE curriculum we provide career-related lessons, activities where local businesses help to provide a realistic experience such as Mock Interviews, college and apprenticeship events, and trips related to various career topics.

For students needing careers support, our school Careers Lead, Mrs Lewington provides advice and guidance.m We also recommend the National Careers Service website.

A number of independent careers sites help parents specifically. These include Adviza and Careers Advice for Parents.

Work Experience

Work experience or work placements are very useful. We offer a week's work experience, for Year 12 students. Additional work during holidays will be viewed with interest by any future employer or university. It can also help your son or daugher to decide what areas they do and don't want to work in, as well as provide future career contacts.

A regular part-time job can give your son/daughter useful evidence of work skills such as commitment, timekeeping, and team work. Guides to the restrictions on part-time jobs whilst still at school, can be found in the left hand menu.
