We expect that all students enrich their learning beyond the classroom. The school has a wide range of extra-curricular activities. These extend students learning and social experiences and are linked to work done in the classroom.

Career Guidance.

All students engage in a wide range of work related activities including work experience, industry days and mock interviews. Students follow a structured programme starting at Year 9 which supports the options process in Year 9, work experience in Year 10 and transition to Further Education or employment in Year 11. The school has strong links with business which supports the programme. As part of this each student receives a one to one consultation with an experienced professional from the business world who can give expert advice on the students CV and personal statement and personal presentation skills.
