Careers Support

Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

We strongly believe that our students should all have access to high quality careers education, advice and guidance through all years and particularly at key transition times to explore the full range of opportunities available to them. 

All students have access to impartial careers guidance from an independent Careers Adviser from Directions IAG Ltd, a matrix accredited careers organisation.  Mrs Burrows is our Careers Adviser and offers independent advice and guidance to students and parents, to give support with making informed decisions about your future.  Mrs Burrows, along with Ms Henderson from the school, is also our Careers Leader.  

The current CEAIG policy can be downloaded here.

To contact Mrs Burrows for information or to request an appointment, please either ring her at the school on 01245 473611 or email
