Students are helped to explore a wide range of career possibilities through our curriculum and as part of enrichment opportunities offered to all students. Such areas are included in our Personal Learning Challenges and Advanced Learning Day programmes, PSHEE and Business and Enterprise lessons. Additional support and guidance is also available through career appointments, lunchtime drop-in sessions in the library or independently through the National Careers Service.
Students are encouraged to speak with a careers advisor or their personal tutor at any time. Career appointments take place in the lower library and can be made online or by submitting an appointment request.
All students from years 8 to 13 are encouraged to contact the National Careers Service for independent guidance. This can be achieved by using the following contact details. Students can find further details on the independent careers guidance offered by visiting our Independent Careers Guidance page.

- University or College courses
- GCSE or A level preferences
- Applying for an Apprenticeship
