Careers at Castle 

Castle School seeks to maximise the life chances of all of our young people and so it is crucial to prepare young people for life beyond school and college. The values and principals document makes direct reference to developing:


‘Knowledge, skills and attributes they (Castle School students) need to lead successful and happy lives’


Our Objectives 

To ensure that all students at the school receive a stable careers programme

  •                 To enable all students to learn from information provided by the career and labour market
  •                 The CEIAG programme should be individual and address the needs of each student
  •                 To link the curriculum learning to careers learning
  •                 To provide students with a series of encounters with employers and employees
  •                 To provide students with experiences of workplace(s)
  •                 To ensure that students have a series of encounters with further and higher education
  •                 To provide each student with the opportunity to receive personal guidance


Work Experience

Work experience opportunities are offered in Year 11 and Post 16.  We aim to offer everyone at least one opportunity for this to be an external placement and offer placements which link to pupil's career interests.

If you work in an environment where it may be possible to offer work experience opportunities, please get in touch.
