Careers

It is important that students make the right choices for their future. Our school values ’the principles of PRIDE’ are introduced to students on arrival at Kings. These key values are aimed to help with personal development, employability, and lifelong learning. The Friday extended tutor programme include career education and activities that enhance key skills. Throughout the year assemblies are delivered by visiting speakers from various businesses and organisations.

Our school Alumni is strong; past students regularly return to share their skills and experience. Business Studies encourages courageous advocacy and entrepreneurship through ‘Big Pitch’ and partnership with the local Rotary club and retail events. Students are invited to careers events, including the annual career fair, throughout the academic year. Students undertake a week of work experience in Year 10 and Year 12 and are extensively supported in their work experience and career choices by their tutor and the Employability Co-ordinator, Mrs Devlin. Futures interviews are scheduled in Year 11 and again in Year 12 with members of our extended Kings’ community, helping students prepare for their next steps, whether that be in further education or employment.
