Careers and Enterprise Education

Careers Education is an integral part of the PSCHEE curriculum in Years 7 to 11. The school has a resident Careers Adviser who works with the Calderdale and Kirklees Careers Service and provides independent advice and guidance to students. Specific support is provided to help students and parents form decisions at 13+, 15+ and 17+.  Students access multi-media resources to support their education about prospective careers and we organise mock interviews where this is appropriate.  

There is an Enterprise Activity Day for Year 10 students and all Upper School students have a week’s work experience. The school has held the Calderdale and Kirklees Careers Education and Guidance Quality Mark since 2004.  The school has an excellent careers library situated in the LRC and it is available to students at most times.
