We have been extremely successful in ensuring our students leave us fully prepared for the next stage in their adult lives.

In the past three years, all of our summer leavers have gone on to further or higher education, to employment or an apprenticeship or to serve in our country’s Armed Forces.

Careers education is delivered from the beginning of Year 7 through tutor time, PSHE lessons and careers events. Our Year 8 students have a work-shadowing day and all Year 10 students have a week-long work experience placement. Due to our excellent careers programme, we have been selected as a leading school by the Careers and Enterprise company and Hertfordshire Enterprise Partnership. We have also received awards recognising our excellent careers education programme.

Throughout their time with us, our students meet and visit a range of employers to ensure they are fully aware of the diverse and exciting opportunities available to them. We are able to draw on a breadth of expertise across our partnership to ensure our students are fully prepared to select and succeed on appropriate pathways through their education.

Alternatively, you can speak to Katie Bailey who is in charge of careers at TAA - KBailey@tas.herts.sch.uk, you can also call our main number and we can put you through to her.


The careers advice and guidance that students receive to support them in making decisions about the next stages of education or the world of employment is also highly effective.
