Futures at Sackville School

Careers at Sackville School

Vision:  At Sackville we aim to ensure all Sackville students receive effective careers guidance to allow them to make informed choices about their future.

Sackville provides a comprehensive careers programme for all its students from the moment they arrive in Year 7 right up to the day they graduate and beyond.

Students are made aware of the opportunities that exist after Sackville as early as year 8 during their GCSE options day.  Careers are a key part of the year 9 personal development curriculum. Year 10 have a futures day and in addition to this, we hold a ‘Meet the Professionals’ evening.

Alongside this, we also run a series of workshops, talks and visits throughout the year, take a look at the ‘Overview’ to find out more about some of these.

In addition, our Careers Leader provides individual guidance to students.  This is open to all students for self-referral, and is focussed intervention for our SEND, Pupil Premium and those most at risk of not continuing in education, employment and training.

In addition to the provision above, our Careers Leader provides individual guidance to students.  This is open to all students for self-referral, and is focussed intervention for our SEND, Pupil Premium and those most at risk of not continuing in education, employment and training.

Our first generation scholars scheme ensures we are working with all families to ensure that our most able students, whatever their background, are given the opportunity to access higher education.

Work experience is a compulsory expectation for year 12, which students are expected to source themselves.  Year 10 & 11 work experience may be undertaken as targeted intervention.

The success of this provision can be clearly seen in our destination data, where the number of Sackville Students not continuing in education, employment and training is well below the national average.
