Y11 to Next Steps
Students entering Year 11 have arguable the most important year of their education in front of them. Not only do they face their GCSE exams, but they have to determine what next steps to take in their career, and secure those steps. We support our students in making these decisions through our careers programme (more information can be found on this in our Careers section).
During Year 11 we host a number of events which help guide students, and provide personalised support via an independent careers adviser, and via their tutor. We actively encourage students to plan a path into further education or into employment with training. To aid this, we invite all of our local colleges into school so they can explain what they can offer in familiar surroundings. We encourage visits to colleges for open days, and practice interview techniques with students during Year 11. We have built strong links with employers and utilise these links at every opportunity.
