Careers - Parents & Employers

ALL year 11s and 12s are seen by our independent careers advisors, who offer unbiased advice.  This is completed before any application deadlines. Pupils or parents can also self-refer. Year 9 pupils are targeted before their options choices after completing pupil surveys or being referred by the SEND or Year Teams.

There are also a number of useful resources on our website that will help you to talk with your child about their Careers aspirations.  Each Careers page has useful links to help inform pupils as they start to think about their future paths.  

All pupils have access to UNIFROG, a really useful Careers Platform.

Parent Advisor has some advice which you may find useful.  At the bottom of the page you will find some useful documents, including the UCAS Parent Guide.  You may find it helpful to sit down with your child and check out one of the websites such as National Careers or Career Box
