Head of Career Services and Senior Leadership Team Member
Our Head of Career Services, Danielle, runs our Ofsted Outstanding bilingual Careers Department. Her team provides a bespoke service to students and families throughout their secondary journey, helping them to shape and achieve their higher educational goals. Our students enter top universities around the world and have gone on to excellent graduate degrees and successful careers.
Our role in Careers goes way beyond just helping with applications because applying to university is a marathon, not a sprint. Having each of our students be their strongest selves, starts early, requires careful planning, strong communication, time and individualised care. Personal attention is given to each student so they can prepare, craft and excel at time of application.”
As a Careers Department our role is to encourage, support, advise and guide each student along their secondary journey. to ensure they are developing not only academically and making the right choices of courses for their futures but also as a well rounded individual and member of the broader community.
(Extract of Ofsted report, March 2019)
Sixth-form students are prepared extremely well for the next stage of their careers. Careers advice, information and guidance are especially strong, and students value the support they get. Students were keen to tell inspectors of the high-quality support they receive to help to complete their university application forms. This is reflected in the very high proportion of students who go on to university. In 2018, for example, 99% of students were accepted at a university of their choice. All students moved on to university, except one who gained employment.
