Year 9 Learn to Earn Day
On Tuesday 8th October, Young Enterprise delivered their Learn to Earn Programme to our Year 9 students. The programme inspires students and provides information on career options to help make informed choices for their future. It enables students to set goals and plan their next steps to prepare them for life beyond education. Through hands-on fun, practical activities, Learn to Earn explores themes such as career choices, personal skills and talents, recruitment and job interviews, salaries, earnings, tax and the costs of living, financial planning and budgeting.
“I think this experience has helped me with a lot of things, including budgeting and finding out how I use my skills to influence my employer.” Ruby Lush
“I believe this experience has helped me not only open my eyes and discover reality, but to help me feel more confident about my future career. This has benefited me loads and I really appreciate this opportunity.” Rebecca Alexander
The Quality in Careers Standard
You will be pleased to know that we have been successful in completing the Commitment Stage of The Quality in Careers Standard.
Year 11 Options
Don’t forget we have an information morning on Wednesday 6th November for your daughter to support her with her decision as to what she will choose to do at the end of Year 11. The programme on the morning will include short ‘chat sessions’ with the teachers of the new and unfamiliar A Level subjects on offer in our Sixth form. These will include subjects such as Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Government and Politics, Philosophy and Ethics, Photography and Film.
For those students who do not wish to take A Levels and who would prefer to embark on a vocational course at a local college after Year 11, we have planned a tour for them to HRC Ware and Broxbourne Campus.
