Careers

It is never too early to start thinking about possible career pathways. You will learn about careers in your PSE lessons, but also in all of your subjects too. If you need help then please speak to your Head of Year or Mrs Gammack. We also have a Connexions advisor in school called Lee Pattison, and he has an office upstairs in RE.
