Careers Programme

The following careers programme has been designed to link to the Gatsby Benchmarks and uses Unifrog as a source of advice and guidance.

We have two Independent Careers Advisors and the Sixth Form and Enhancement Teams available for students to make appointments for individual consultation (this links to Benchmark 8).

Each student will be provided with their own individual log in for Unifrog.  If you have any queries or feedback please fill in the Unifrog and Careers Programme Evaluation.  We measure and assess the impact of our careers programme using the Gatsby Benchmarks Good Career Guide and student feedback forms.


Provider Access Statement

This statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.  This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.  Please click on this link to read our Provider Access Statement in full.
