University and Careers Support
We aim to prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life, through the development of career management skills. In the Key Stage 3 Pastoral Programme, students meet the Careers Coordinator and also receive guidance on those areas of the curriculum which are only offered from Year 10 and beyond. In Key Stage 4, key aspects of career planning and management are covered and students meet with Careers Department staff to discuss options available. In Senior Studies the careers education and guidance offered allows students to make informed decisions to be made about their future. The Careers Department contains up-to-date information on various occupations and on university courses throughout the world. Staff are available to give guidance and support and each student will be offered an individual interview to set up an action plan for the future. All students and parents are welcome to make individual appointments at any time.
Throughout the year, the school welcomes representatives from universities around the world. These visits provide our students with the opportunity to receive first-hand information and demonstrate to the university representatives the quality of learning and facilities available to them.
