Welcome to our Careers and World of Work Pages

Careers Team

Assistant Head Teacher responsible for Careers: Jill Heales

Careers Lead: Danielle McDonnell

Careers Officer: Ruth Turner

Our Careers Education Programme is inclusive of all students in all year groups.  We are working hard to replace our usual work related learning events with quality remote and virtual opportunities.  Our Careers Pages are under construction and details of our policy and lesson plans will soon be available.


Careers Resources

We have a Careers Area with resources for all students to access at any-time, this is located just off the atrium in front of the Library. Students have access to an external Careers Advisor from ‘Adviza’ as well as drop in sessions and 1-2-1 meetings with the Academy’s Careers Officers.
