Careers Calendar

A note about our 2020-2021 Careers Calendar

Due to coronavirus it has not been possible to put together our usual programme of events.  Where possible we have directed our pupils to relevant online events, of which there are many.  When I become aware of an event an email is sent to the relevant year groups or, if appropriate, an parentmail is sent out.

To give you a flavour of activities that would normally happen, here is last years’ calendar.
