Ms Barrett is our Careers and Leadership Co-ordinator. Careers education is taken seriously. It begins from the moment our students walk through our doors in Year 7 and will continue all the way through to Year 11. Not only is careers taught during Personal Development, but we also have a whole host of opportunities to learn from employers and employees from a variety of industries and professions. In addition, we ensure all students have individual guidance tailored to their specific needs and receive information in a variety of ways, such as work-related learning workshops, theatre performances, external business speakers, one to one interviews, transition support – all of which will inspire and inform students along their chosen career pathway.
In addition to the above, each subject area will have other opportunities for students to experience the link between learning in the classroom and earning in the workplace.
We are delighted to announce that we are now a partner school with InvestIN. This is an organisation which offers careers experiences for students aged 12-18.
