Getting Involved

Careers Support database

If you would like to be involved in supporting the careers programme please sign yourself up -

This is open to parents, carers, local business, companies and providers who would like to offer virtual or in person opportunities to our students. 

Our Provider Access Policy (found under Careers Department Documents) invites external people in to our school to support our careers programme. In addition to the activities listed there we also are looking to host in 2023/24 academic year a series of careers cafes. One per term focussing on a different profession/industry area. If you would like to run one of these the proposed dates (subject to change) are:

Every 3rd Thursday of the half-term- careers café sessions 3.30-4.30pm


21st September

2nd November

25th January

21st March

9th May

27th June


We are also hoping to run two big careers events, that will happen bi annually-

Ks4/5 careers fair-November 16th  2023   

Ks3 careers fair-February 23rd   2024      


In addition, there are key activities that happen in school that would benefit from additional careers input. Examples include Engineering day for year 7 usually in March. GCSE Business studies classes putting theory into practise via business owners and PE GCSE and A level classes with physiotherapist and related roles. 


Year 12 work experience is the last week of the summer term normally around mid-July if you are able to offer placements within your organisations students are looking for your support.
