Careers Education and Guidance promotes the skills and understanding that are necessary for young people to make informed decisions about the choices that they face at each stage of their career development. This process offers a particular contribution to the school’s Mission Statement: I have come that they may have life and have it to the full. Years Eight to Thirteen are identified as the recipients of Careers Education and Guidance. The school’s provision prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
