Careers Statement

Successful careers guidance is essential to raising the aspirations of our young people, and by this, that of the community also.

Developing skills and an understanding of how to apply them is a key element of faculty programmes at Key Stage 3, allowing students to better comprehend career paths that would be suited to them.

As young people are nurtured through the school employment pathways and further education, destinations become the focal point of mentoring and independent guidance programmes.

Developing independent, resilient young people who are able to be successful in the work environment is central to the school’s role within the community.
