All year groups have access to Work Related Learning (WRL), Careers and/or Enterprise education.

There is an element of Careers education embedded into PSHE education and WRL for all years, especially at Key Stage 4. We have our own Careers Advice and Guidance Counsellor, Lisa Felgate, who is in school on a Monday and Wednesday and all pupils are welcome to drop in at lunchtime.

Individual half hour confidential careers guidance interviews begin in Year 10 and continue into Year 11. Parents are welcome to attend. Extra events take place at various times throughout the year for all age groups
