You will also find information on the labour market for our local area and information on what to do if you would like to provide any careers information for our students. We also welcome contact from any business or organisation that can provide work experience of careers talks for our students. Guidance on how to contact the school can be found on the web page.
Year 9 students are now in the middle of the process of selecting their Key Stage 4 subjects for next year. They received an assembly last week which explored potential career routes and things to consider before selecting their options and will receive their 'Making Choices' booklets this week which include detailed information on each of the subjects that can be studied next year. The year 9 Parent Information Evening is next week on Tuesday 28th January. if you haven't already signed up, you can do so by visiting the Parent's Evening Booking System on the website.

Students from the school have come together for a new enterprise competition. Four Year 9 and four Year 12 students, with the support of Ms Histed, Ms Kubilay and Mr Crump, are raising money for Haven House and London Children's Hospice through a Business Enterprise Project sponsored by Galliard Homes. This is an exciting opportunity for our selected students to use and develop their business enterprise skills to make as much money as they can for the children’s charity by implementing and executing their fundraising and business ideas. Students will be meeting on a weekly basis after school to plan and organise their strategies and events. Galliard Homes have given our team £50 capital to start their enterprise project with the goal of raising £1500 before 1st April 2020. The team will be holding various events over the next three months. The events and schemes taking place over the next few weeks are a ‘Sixth Form Inter-form Football Tournament’, ‘Guess the Number of Sweets in the Jar’ and a ‘Smoothie Sale'. If you would like to make a donation to this wonderful cause, please follow the link below:â
