Personal Guidance

“Every pupil should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a Careers Adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all pupils but should be timed to meet their individual needs.”
Gatsby Benchmark 8

Throughout the year students are able to request an interview with Miss Smith Careers Manager to discuss their future aspirations.

Year 11 will have a 1-1 interview, and Year 13 students will have the choice to attend a 1-1 interview with Miss Smith to discuss future destinations and applications.

We will prioritise students to be given an interview in the Autumn term depending on need and personal circumstances.

There are also drop-in sessions for both students and parents/guardians:
