Careers events

We are proud of our busy and packed schedule of planned events throughout the academic year, as well as taking advantage of ad-hoc trips and encounters when possible! However, the safety of our students is of paramount importance and during the pandemic, many of these had to be put on hold.

We are looking forward to reinstating our schedule as and when it is safe to do so and following Government advice.

Please check out our Careers Plan and see below for some of the exciting careers related learning our students have already enjoyed and are looking forward to. This is in addition to our regular PSHE and curriculum embedded lessons, personal guidance interviews and parents evenings.
