Careers Support

A childhood hobby can become a catalyst for a lifelong passion, which is why we support future career paths through Senior School and beyond.

Advice and practical help from our Careers and Higher Education Department enable pupils to explore suitable subject choices, degrees and jobs. In later years, weekly form periods offer time for focus and reflection upon next steps.

We do everything in our power to create the right opportunities for our pupils, supporting their chosen careers every inch of the way.


  • Careers Evening
    • Careers Evening

      We run a range of careers events including a Careers Evening with speakers from a variety of professions such as medicine, law, engineering, finance and the armed forces. These speakers are often former pupils, parents or local businesses with connections to the school.

      The most recent Careers Evening took place in November and was attended by over 250 pupils and their parents. If you are interested in getting involved in future careers events, please click here to register your interest.

Preparation for University

The Higher Education department runs an annual Information Evening in the spring term for parents of prospective university applicants. Students in the Sixth Form are offered advice about the choice of courses and universities. We offer interview tips and practice sessions.

Assistance and guidance are offered throughout the application process and beyond and staff are available in school for several days in August after A and AS Level results have been released in order to support students.

How to find us

We are located on the ground floor of the Sixth Form Centre. Students can drop-in or book an appointment to see us.
