The academy is committed to ensuring that each and every one of our students leaves us with the skills and attributes required to take their place in the world of work and further education. We are fully compliant with statutory guidance, and the following are embedded in our practice:

  • Students have the opportunity to access independent careers guidance (yr8-11)
  • Our policy statement on provider access enables opportunities for students to
    learn from providers about approved technical education qualifications or
    apprenticeships (yr8-11)
  • Provider visits are made available to all students in the relevant year group
  • Independent careers guidance provided is presented in an impartial manner,
    showing no bias or favouritism towards a particular institution, education or
    work option, and includes information on the full range of education or training
    options, including apprenticeships and technical education routes (yr10-11)
  • Where pupils have EHC plans, their annual reviews include a focus on
    adulthood, including employment (yr8-11)

The academy takes the views of stakeholders seriously, and every opportunity is used to seek feedback. Views of parents were collated at the recent year 11 Parents' Evening, and feedback is sought from students for all educational and career based visits. T

Careers Programme


Our aim is to improve the life chances of our students to enable them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Our CEIAG provision provide our students with opportunities to learn, demonstrate and evidence their employability character, enabling them to evolve successfully to take their next steps into employment or further study.

We prepare learners for future success in education, employment or training by providing unbiased information to all about potential next steps; high quality, up-to-date and locally relevant careers guidance and opportunities for good quality meaningful encounters with the world of work.

Learner access to 1:1 (level 6) impartial Personal Careers Guidance supports progression into the setting which is right for them.


We recognise the most effective way to deliver careers education is to embed it within core teaching and learning activities, supported by a co-curriculum programme of activities. Any centrally delivered careers activities will aim to support curriculum delivery rather than provide a stand-alone careers education programme.


Successful careers education and guidance is reflected in NEET data.
