We aim to help students make informed decisions at key times in their education, for example with option choices in Year 8, post 16 plans and support in Year 11, Year 12 and 13 as they plan for university or working life.  In addition to dedicated careers input for all year groups, the school’s CEIAG programme includes interaction with universities, the local and wider business community.  Year 12 students have the opportunity to complete a one week work experience placement.
