At Girls' High we understand that making big decisions can be quite a daunting prospect. Some people seem to have their future plans mapped out but there are plenty of those who feel confused about what choices to make. Whilst University might be something that feels right for you, there are other pathways to all sorts of careers that give you qualifications whilst you earn too. 

The school is committed to ensuring that students have high quality impartial advice on career opportunities, and that our students progress onto appropriate courses or employment on leaving the school.

The school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme by undertaking student voice discussions to find out what aspects of the programme they find most valuable. They also utilise "Destinations statistics" to tailor the programme appropriately

This page is designed to support both student and parents/carers with information advice and guidance on many different careers related topics such as:

  • Further education and training options

  • The careers curriculum on offer at WGHS 

  • Enrichment opportunities 

  • Work experience in Year 10

  • Experiences of people in the world of work

  • External agencies offering advice and guidance with links to them
