Careers Advisor

All students are welcome to make an appointment with the school’s careers advisor.

This service is actively marketed to Year 7 – Year 13 students.  In addition to a booking system in the school library, the careers adviser makes priority appointments for Pupil Premium and SEN students for Year 9 upwards. The careers adviser also makes appointments for students to ensure that all either book an appointment or are invited for one during KS4 and KS5.

The careers advisor is also present at Y10, Y11, Y12 and Y13 parents’ evening and at the Year 9 options evening. In addition to this, every student from year 7 to 13 will has access to Unifrog, an online careers advice package. Students are introduced to this service through form time and personal development sessions.
