We have the pleasure of celebrating the success of our students who leave us ready to engage in purposeful employment, education or training.
In the past three years, all of our summer leavers have successfully progressed to further or higher education, employment or higher and degree apprenticeships or to serve in our country’s Armed Forces.
Careers education, underpinned by a tailored programme, is delivered from year 7 to 13. We deliver age-appropriate modules to prepare students for key moments of choice and provide comprehensive, impartial information on all academic and vocational routes. Each year group has the opportunity to explore their future careers and the qualifications and skills required for their next steps in reaching their career goals. Timetabled sessions ensure students make informed decisions about future studies and career options that are reviewed and updated regularly. Our excellent careers programme has been recognised by the careers hub county wide and we have been selected as a ‘leading school’ by the Careers and Enterprise Company and the Hertfordshire Enterprise Partnership.
All our students meet through years 7 to 13, visit and work with a range of employers and higher education providers to ensure they are fully aware of the diverse and exciting pathways available to them. We are able to draw on a breadth of expertise across our partnership and widening access participation teams from universities to ensure our students are fully prepared to select and succeed on appropriate destinations through their education.
