Year 9 Options
In Year 9 we support students when choosing their options. By making the right decisions and choosing the subjects that they will excel in, students have more options in the future.
In Year 10, all of our students have the opportunity to take part in a week of work experience with a local employer. This will give them the chance to develop their employability skills and knowledge of different sectors in the world of work. One to one guidance interviews are also offered to Year 10 students and they will all take part in colleges taster days at the end of Year 10.
Year 11 Guidance Interviews
All Year 11 students are offered a one to one guidance interview with our School Careers Adviser to support them in making their future choices. Follow up appointments are also offered to pupils who need more time or support to make the right decisions. In addition, we ensure all pupils have access to a range of guest speakers and visits so they can make well-informed choices.
