Would you like to make an appointment with a Careers Advisor?

We welcome all students from all year groups.

Anyone can make an appointment with a careers advisor.   We are usually in the office – located in the LRC – before and after school and at recess and lunch. Students are most welcome to drop in but at times we can be busy, so the best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.

Please note the new email address:  For any enquiries or to make an appointment please email us.
