Careers Programme

Our engaging programme starts in the Preparatory School but receives greater attention from Year 7 and builds year-on-year to help students make informed decisions during their school careers, such as their GCSE and future A-level choices, with a particular expertise in helping students assess their interest and potential in a future subject choice. This expertise contributes to the value added the
school is recognised for.

Students also understand the link between their option choices and decisions for post-16 education and on how to choose subjects that suit them as an individual – their strengths, values and interests. We then seek to support students to develop the skills necessary to achieve their goals, such as application writing and interview techniques for post-16 education and beyond.

While academic support is considered a priority for all pupils, we firmly believe in supporting the whole of a student’s learning experience. This includes supporting them through their decision-making process when the time comes to think about sixth forms, colleges, apprenticeships, A-Level courses, vocational courses and combinations of options.

We have two primary aims for our careers support provision:

  • To ensure that all students are informed about the range of career options available to them
  • To identify what students enjoy, are good at and could be doing in five years’ time

Today’s job market is complex and constantly evolving, and pupils are faced with a wide range of choices. While most of our pupils opt to attend sixth forms, our support extends to a much wider range of opportunities, including apprenticeships and vocational avenues.
