Careers/Work Experience

Careers 

The school prepares pupils well for their next steps in education through effective careers advice.  Pupils say that they feel well prepared for their future and responses to pupil questionnaires further confirm this.  Most pupils at key stage 4 move on to appropriate courses, such as sixth form, college and apprenticeships.  OFSTED 2017

High-quality careers education is evident, consequently all students who completed their courses in 2016 moved into higher education, employment or apprenticeships.  OFSTED 2017
