We are delighted to announce that the Careers Department has once again been awarded the Quality in Careers Standard. This involved a rigorous evaluation of the careers information, advice and guidance programme delivered by our team of three fully qualified careers advisers together with our work experience coordinator.
Our provision was assessed as fully meeting the nationally recognised Gatsby Benchmarks, the standards which provide the framework defining the best careers provision in secondary schools.
The careers support was described by students and parents as both ‘excellent’ and ‘open, friendly, flexible and adaptable,’ and the department was commended on the fact that individual appointments are always readily available.
One student commented: ‘We think very highly of the Careers Advisers, they really know their stuff!’
