Aimee and Sarah – Connexions advisors – Careers Guidance
  • Sarah is in school on Tuesdays
  • Aimee is in school Wednesdays and Fridays
We can help with careers advice and guidance, careers information, apprenticeships and college information, CV’s and job hunting and interview preparation. This is through one-to-one informal careers interviews in the Connexions room (next to Room 46, Sports Building) and group sessions. We try to see all Year 11’s and  Years 9 and 10 by request. We put appointment cards in your registers to let you know you have an interview booked.

Suzanne – Connexions advisor – Personal Development
  • Suzanne is in school on Mondays and Thursdays
I provide support on many issues including school, friendships, family, home, sexual health and activities outside of school.  I see a small number of students on a regular basis.  If you feel like you want to talk about any of these things then please speak to your tutor or head of year who can make a referral for you to me.
