Year 11 Interviews
It is important that students (with the support of their families) consider these choices carefully to ensure that their pathways both at the college and beyond are kept open to them. With this in mind Year 11 students and their parents are invited to make a careers interview time with the team at school prior to completing their option form. This is intended to start you thinking more about the future and where the different subjects can take you - as well as giving you suggestions on how to make the best choices for you.
If you wish to make a careers interview booking (particularly if your student is finding option selection challenging) please email Charlotte Lucas or Marcus Bate at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Both Charlotte & Marcus (Careers Advisors) will be present to answer any questions you or your student may have throughout the evening.
All option forms need to be returned to the college by Friday 29th August
