Our vision is to provide every student with a healthy diet of careers advice, opportunity, experience and guidance as they embark on transition into post 16 life.

We believe high school is the firm foundation where a stable education can be transformed into an exciting and rewarding career.  For all students within any industry they wish to pursue.  The futures team want to enhance their knowledge, experiences and academic progress, so students can take transferable skills into not only post 16 options but also into adult hood and their eventual future career.
