Information for Students

Students are entitled to careers education, information, advice and guidance which is both impartial and confidential. At Key Stage 4 students are able to access an interview with an independent careers advisor. For students identified within priority groups, provision is made through the school’s career leader Mr Mark Cathie, Assistant Headteacher, who can be contacted through the school phone number (023 9269 3521) or via email – [email protected].

There is also the opportunity for students to have access to careers advice from independent and local institutions, including Portsmouth College, Highbury College, Southdowns & Havant College, Fareham College and Chichester College. Strong ties are made with three local Universities through in-school presentations, events, campus visits and published on-line information.

The aim of our Careers Programme is to ensure that all students have access to impartial careers information and guidance throughout each academic year.
