Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance

Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)  helps you to identify your unique set of skills and knowledge. 

We explore how your abilities can be applied in different career sectors. 

We also advise you on qualification pathways that will give you the training that will further develop your skills.

Y9 GCSE Preferences Feb-March 2021

This half term, Y9 students and their families need to consider the GCSE subjects that they would like to study in Y10 and 11.

We have a webpage of advice to help you through each stage of the process.  Visit the GCSE Preferences & Form page.

All students receive special CEIAG lessons as part of PSHEE.  We also provide special assemblies and parental meetings to help guide you to make the important decisions that will shape your future.

We have pages devoted to the delivery of CEIAG in different year groups.
