Careers

Mission Statement

We are passionate about giving our students the best possible advice and guidance for their futures. We provide this guidance in a variety of ways, including using our own highly trained and experienced staff as well as using the expertise of other organisations.

We believe that students should have the opportunity to see the world of work; both within their curriculum providing real examples of work based activity and relevance, as well as being able to speak to people from across a diverse range of different work settings.

We make use of online learning tools for careers related guidance, and have provided links here to specific sites which we believe are informative and suitable for young people thinking about their future pathways.
