Mr D Flynn - Careers

We run a bespoke careers programme for students in Year 7 to 11


During extended tutor sessions, Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students receive careers information, advice and guidance tailored to their requirements via PSHE sessions. Year 11 spend this time generating CV’s and researching potential careers and applying for Colleges/Apprenticeships.


Year 10 students also have access to one week Work Experience placements, these are all health and safety checked by Hampshire Futures (Hants County Council). Students can either source their own placement, or request a placement to be found for them.

Every Year 11 student receives 1:1 careers guidance and application help from our specialist careers advisor.  There is also an opportunity to attend a Careers/College Evening where students can network with all colleges in the local area, apprenticeship providers, uniformed services and businesses across all sectors. To further prepare them for life beyond school, a Mock Interview day is programmed in to the school calendar; local business people offer feedback and guidance on each individual interview and CV.

Year 9 students are offered opportunities to attend work place visits via the ‘Step Into’ programme. Trips involve tours to numerous sectors including sport, retail and hospitality venues
