Would you like to speak to a Careers Advisor?

Career meetings are for all year groups.  The Careers Office is open to all students in all years.  We are usually in the office before and after school, and at recess and lunch.  Girls are most welcome to drop in but at times we can be busy with students, so the best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.
