The careers program is currently under review.


How the school measures and assesses the careers programme’s impact on pupils.

The school measures the careers interactions using Compass+ .


The careers programme is designed to meet the needs of all students.  It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities that are appropriate to pupils’ stages of career learning, planning and development.

  1. Supporting them to achieve their full potential and raise aspirations
  2. Enabling them to plan and manage their own futures by developing decision making skills with regard to interests, subjects and jobs
  3. Providing them with comprehensive information on all options available to them
  4. Supporting inclusion by promoting equality, diversity, social mobility and challenge stereotypes
  5. Promoting participation in learning through positive and regular experiences
  6. Providing them with opportunities to develop an awareness of the “World of Work” through regular and meaningful encounters with employers
  7. We endeavour to ensure, through a balanced and broad curriculum that pupils are ready for the next stage of education, employment or training


Ofsted Report 2017 -

'Another line of enquiry for the insepction was the quality of careers guidance.  The vast majority of pupils who attend the school also attend the school's post-16 provision.  Students value the step-change in responsibilty they experiecne in key stage 5 and how well they are prepared for their futures.  They are offered a comprhensive range of careers guidance and opportunities  for work experience and 'tasters' based on each individual need.  Staff work hard to ensure that all students are supported according to their precise needs to maximise the success of their next step into adult life.  The wide range of destinations that students go on to are testament to the thoughful consideration of staff when making sure that placements are just right for the students'.
