In order to ensure that timely information is made available to all students in the Upper School regarding examination subject choices that will have a direct influence on what post-school courses and career paths will be open to them, all students in Classes 9 to 11 have individual meetings with the Sponsors and the Careers Co-ordinator. Thereafter, meetings will be available by arrangement, as and when needed by individuals.
The aim is to champion the aspirations of individuals whilst enabling them to access factual information that will allow them, in consultation with teachers and parents, to make informed choices and set themselves achievable goals that take into account their abilities, current attainment levels and the amount of time left at school.
