Careers Info

For further information regarding the school’s careers education programme, please contact:

Mrs Julia Corbett

Careers Leader

01823 274073


Mrs Corbett co-ordinates the careers education programme and meets with students on a one-to-one basis to provide advice, guidance and information regarding their next steps and career aspirations.  All students are seen in Year 10/11 for an individual interview and students are offered guidance if required when selecting their GCSE options.  Parents are welcome to attend their child’s careers interview but would need to contact Mrs Corbett to arrange a convenient time.

There are also drop in sessions available in the careers office (Q16) at break times for students to ask any questions or to book an appointment with Mrs Corbett. 

For students who are considering pursuing the apprenticeship route, Mrs Corbett is happy to help with applications or to arrange a mock interview.
