Dedicated careers lessons within the PSHE program in Year 10 introduce students to the main career paths within a range of professions, as well as explain the academic, skills and training requirements.
All students complete a questionnaire designed to help them understand their interests and aptitudes, and suggest possible careers.
Students are encouraged to spend time in the dedicated Careers Room and all attend the annual regional Independent Schools Careers Fair.
The Head of Careers is available for consultation at any time. Further lessons within the Lower Sixth Form enrichment course enables students to refine their career choices and prepare for university application.
