Believe - Achieve - Succeed




Careers are an integral part of our school and we have developed an exciting and informative programme that impacts across all year groups from 7 to 11. Careers is embedded across the school curriculum and each department has a Career champion that attends meetings and develops the initiatives within their department. We measure our success continually against the Gatsby Benchmarks using the Compass+ tool.


The school has a dedicated careers area where learners can access information they may require to choose the right career path. All the materials provided have been carefully researched and are appropriate to the age and ability of our young people. In Year 10 all learners are offered the opportunity to participate in one week work experience, they are encouraged to source their own placements.


As a careers team we are extremely proud of our achievements to date and are constantly looking to improve. We have built links with local industry, sixth form providers and universities enabling our learners’ access to the next steps whether that is apprenticeships/T Levels or further study at sixth form or college.

One of the measures we use to assess impact of the careers programme is the yearly destination figures, supplied by C+K. You can view the current information below.

Rob Crookes is our C+K Careers advisor and is in school every Thursday and Friday. If you would like to make an appointment with Rob please contact him on


Information for Learners

What are T Levels?

Find out about T Levels from students, teachers, careers leaders, employers and a university representative. This 6-minute film explains what makes T Levels different from existing post-GCSE choices and who they will suit. T Levels are new 2 year qualifications that have been designed with employers to give young people a head start towards the careers they want.

UK Apprenticeships - in a nutshell

This information will be reviewed in September 2024.
