We are pleased to have achieved stage one of The Quality in Careers Standard taking into account the Gatsby Benchmarks and the DfE statutory guidance, and are working towards achieving the other stages in due course. Our Enterprise Coordinator and our careers link governor work closely with the school, supported by the Careers and Enterprise Company, to provide strategic support, bringing their business experience and professional networks to help develop and implement an effective strategy that makes opportunities with local employers an important part of our pupils' education.

All pupils in Years 7 to Upper Sixth are given their full entitlement of information about university, technical education and apprenticeships and employment opportunities within the curriculum, Enterprise Days, PSHE sessions, school trips and visits, and lunch time and evening talks.

Pupils and staff members are asked to give feedback on any events which have taken place, and the following year’s activities are planned taking their comments, and any parental comments, into account.

The Careers Team

Our Careers Leader is Miss Rebecca Smith ( Pupils are welcome to visit the Library and speak to Mrs Dawson, the Careers Coordinator, for information or advice. Anyone is welcome to contact Mrs Dawson by emailing . Mr Smith, Deputy Headteacher has oversight for careers.

The Independent Careers Adviser is Mrs Bridget Elinson, who is in school once a week. Any pupil who would like to chat to her should contact Mrs Dawson to make an appointment.



UniFrogUnifrog is an online platform that the school uses to support pupils in the career education, supporting them to be as well informed as possible about their future pathways.  Parents are given Unifrog access and joining details are sent to parents in September of each academic year. This will help you support your child in building a fantastic career profile.
