Careers Advice

We are very grateful to our Alumni who have returned to the school to assist our current pupils with career advice and have volunteered their services as career mentors. In addition, we would like to thank our Alumni who have assisted with mock interviews. This contribution has enabled high quality preparation for pupils as they embark upon the next stage after the Academy.
