Careers & Employability

A young person’s career is their pathway through learning and work. All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them make decisions and plan their careers, both in school and after they leave.

The school is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance for all students in partnership with Calderdale and Kirklees Careers Service.

For further information on our careers programme please contact Stephen Wilson - Careers Lead Teacher on 01924 456811 -
