All pupils receive Careers Education and guidance as part of their PHSE/Citizenship and Careers education. This is an integral part of the curriculum on offer at the School. This is augmented by regular visits by the Connexions Personal Advisor, who speaks to groups of pupils and also interviews pupils on an individual basis during Years 9/10/11. Attendance at Annual Reviews also forms part of this process with parental involvement in drawing up a 14+ transition plan which maps out opportunities for pupils during their final two years.
Work Experience also plays a major role within the programme. It allows for pupils to experience a number of work placements, normally on a one day per week basis over Years 10 and 11.
Opportunities also exist for pupils to attend courses as part of the VETO programme and courses at the local colleges.
