Careers Guidance

From the first day that a pupil enters the Grammar School (even in year seven), open access is provided to all careers material (careers library, videos, booklets, etc.). Additionally, every pupil is encouraged to use the College's careers computer, with its regularly updated database, in order to seek out information on any of the hundreds of careers available.

Not surprisingly, these opportunities are taken up by almost every pupil in year seven, and it is not unusual, within a few weeks of a pupil entering the school, for teaching staff to find themselves discussing possible future careers with both pupil and parents. In subsequent years, each pupil is individually counselled by both the school and the local Careers Guidance Officer with whom appointments are specifically made.
