Higher Education & CareersPlanning your future

Our Higher Education and Careers programme starts in Year 7 as the girls begin to think about the subject areas that most interest them and discover the wide range of careers that are available to them. In Year 9 we provide tailored support for girls who are thinking about their GCSE options to ensure that these align with any career aspirations. This is even more important in Year 11 as students consider their options for A Level and IB study and they have one- to-one meetings and bespoke advice. At the end of Year 11 – supported by the careers team – all students embark on a work experience placement.
