Welcome to Careers!

The Careers Department is located in school at the end of the Drama Corridor. In addition, there is a dedicated careers library and careers noticeboards around the school site.

These web pages give both students and parents comprehensive information, advice and guidance on career choices with links to useful websites. Linked to this page, there are further individual pages with more detailed information for each Key Stage. There are also further resources available to students on the careers pages on Myvle, including access to information databases.

The school’s Career, Employability and Enterprise Policy and the Work Experience Policy can both be downloaded from the Policies and Documents page.

The information on these pages is reviewed annually, the next review being due in September 2022.
