At The Fernwood School we are committed to ensuring our students have access to high quality Careers education. We want to ensure that all students can develop the skills and knowledge that help them to make informed decisions about their future.

The decisions students make at school will have a big impact on their lives and we want to ensure they have as much advice, information and guidance to help them to decide which route will work best for them when they leave us. This may be Sixth Form College, further education or apprenticeships. We also want them to have high aspirations so they can be motivated and fully engaged with their education, understanding how this links to their future success.

We have a full careers programme with many curriculum opportunities which begins in Year 7, allowing students to develop their skills and ambitions for life as they begin their journey with us. We continuously strive for improvement and we are committed to building positive relationships with colleges and businesses so we can give our students real experiences of the world of work and education.
