Futures / Careers Programme

As a school we continue to; develop our service to maximise our enrichment offer and student development, to enhance their chances of finding the right courses at post-16 and beyond, and help each student consider possible career paths in future life. Through a robust process of opportunities and experiences, all students will be fully prepared for further education and a career that both suits and inspires for a lifetime! This is complemented with a continuous careers service from years 7 to 11.

Please click on the links at the bottom of the page for further information regarding both KS3 and KS4 futures.

Higher Education

We work with many Further Education institutes, such as Brooksby Melton College and MV16. Students are encouraged to visit 6th Forms and College Open Days; we also offer trips for students to visit University Open Days, including Oxford University and De Montfort University.
