- Joining our Alumni Network to stay connected with our school

- Inspiring our pupils through interactive assemblies

- Delivering subject-related Q&A sessions to share your expertise with our pupils

Your involvement in any of these activities would greatly benefit our pupils and provide them with real-world insights and guidance.

- Employer Encounters

- Assemblies with local post-16 providers


If you are interested in getting involved or would like more information, please do not hesitate to Careers Lead or Careers and Employer Engagement Officer , contact details below.


We believe that your support can make a significant impact on the educational journey of our pupils, and we look forward to the opportunity to work together to create a vibrant learning community.
