Our careers education runs throughout our curriculum and all year groups have regular opportunities to engage in careers planning, which can then be put in to practice with work experience in Year 10 and Year 12.
We have a variety of careers events, assemblies and trips which we run throughout the year to support all of our children in their learning about careers. From starting our careers programme in Primary, we believe we can help teach our pupils the importance of striving for their goals to achieve their desired career choice. We also hope that in doing so, every student regardless of their age or background, believes in our ethos of "everyone, every lesson, every opportunity" and that any career goals they strive for are achievable.
