Guidance and Counselling

Our Connexions centre offers InformationAdvice and Guidance to students.

The centre is located between reception and the dining hall is home to our Counselling Service, Life Skills, Work Experience, Career Advice, Morrisby Tests and Independent Advisers from outside agencies to help students with their careers and future plans.

Our Careers Education Programme is updated each year and aims to offer students a stable career programme which includes Work Experience for Year 12 students and additional support in Years 9 and 11 when students have to make choices for their qualifications and which pathway they will follow.  We also run Clubs, prepare the Enterprise Markets and plan the Extended Learning Days (ELD).
