Careers talks

Options programmes are an important part of this term’s PSHE classes, allowing pupils an opportunity to think about their subject choices for the forthcoming school years. Naturally, career intentions have a major role in this process, so our Careers Advisor, Ruth Robertson, has provided classroom lessons to help pupils make thir minds up.

2nd year pupils look at the skills and qualities required for different jobs through quizzes and games before investigating their own ideas and preferences.


4th years receive guidance on the option of leaving school and looking for a job or training, or whether to stay on at school for further qualifications.

Ms Robertson is usually available in school every Tuesday and Wednesday and holds a regular Careers Surgery every Tuesday in the Library Resource Centre at lunchtime.
