We are looking forward to hosting another Career and Options Focus Morning for our current Year 8 students on 27th February 2019. We are planning on running speed interviewing and smaller focus groups if we get enough interest from employers. If you would like to take part in the event and speak to our students about your career please contact Miss Burke on the above email address.

All Year 10 students will also have the opportunity to have a 1-1 appointment with a qualified careers advisor. We are going through the students form by form, however, if you feel like you would like your appointment to be brought forward, then speak to Miss Burke.
