Careers Education and Guidance

“Every young person needs high-quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future.” (Good Career Guidance, Gatsby)

Our mission is to enhance the capabilities of students and families through a comprehensive careers’ guidance programme encompassing well-being, academic, career and university guidance services. Our dedicated University & Careers Counsellor is able to offer one to one support for all Year 12s and Year 13s supported by the wider IB team.

Younger year groups receive support from the academic team in consultation with the University & Careers Counsellor, in particular during transition periods of Year 9 and Year 11.

In addition to personalised counselling, the school also utilizes Unifrog, a dynamic platform that empowers students to explore their interests identify their abilities, and access valuable tools for a seamless transition from High School to University.

The Career programme is enriched by regular visits from leading international universities throughout the year. These visits take diverse formats, including university fairs, subject-specific talks, and workshops focused on the university application process.
