Year 10/11 Careers Advice

Year 10/11

  • Year 10 is a good time to start thinking about developing your talents as well as working at your GCSEs.

    Had any positions of responsibility in school? If not ask your form teacher if there are any opportunities at the moment. Are you in a sports team? Drama club? Could you help to mentor younger students?

    The Careers Team is available most lunchtimes in the Careers Hub located in the LRC.  Come along for Information, Advice and Guidance and use the Careers Library to research your ideas. We’ll meet you in small groups in the Summer Term to talk about options after Year 11. If you need your own appointment, just ask or speak to your teacher and they will arrange it.
