We pride ourselves on our student progression. Our students are individuals and each has an individualised careers progression plan. In 2021, all school leavers progressed on to either further education, training and work placements, apprenticeships or further study.
For pupils, parents, teachers and employers who may want further information, please contact Mrs Rawlinson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Personal Development team work closely with our wider careers community to offer our students a bespoke careers package. We pride ourselves on our strong connections with South Cumbria, national and international employers. Our students have a 50 minute lesson every week within personal development where time is spent working on careers education. Our students careers entitlement is designed to give the best possible start to careers pathways, no matter what that may be.
