We recognise the importance of a robust careers programme and giving students as many opportunities as possible to find out more about their post 18 options.

Throughout their time in Sixth Form students will take part in a range of career related activities, including hearing from a range of guest speakers from Higher education institutions, apprenticeship providers, and local employers, as well as taking part in visits to career fairs and visiting a university setting.
