The Academy is committed to the education and development of its pupils from their entry at 11 until their departure at 18, and sees careers education and guidance as the responsibility of all teachers. As such we aim to provide a wide range of experiences, support and guidance to help them through their decisions and into their future.
Due to our shared vision, “To create confident, ambitious and resilient individuals, prepared for life”, We are always looking to engage with local businesses to improve the support we can offer to our students to fulfil their potential. Please do contact our careers leader, Mr M Jensen, if you can offer assistance.
We monitor the impact of our careers programme by tracking student destinations at key transition stages. Our monitoring informs the development of our careers programme.
