Careers Events and Experiences
National Careers Week 2022
National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education.

National Careers Week 2021
Throughout National Careers Week we shared information online with our pupils, parents and carers. Once all pupils were back in school we held a Careers Day with the theme "My Dream Job". Pupils were asked to research their dream job and then create fact sheets about that career. We used these sheets to create a large display in school.
International Women's Day 2021
Well done to all pupils for getting involved in discussions surrounding gender inequalities in school. It is great to hear the views of our pupils and demonstrates their emotional intelligence.
