Careers Programme

At Bridgewater School our continuous Careers Programme forms an integral part of the Sixth Form tutorial system, enabling every student to receive one-to-one guidance and personalised advise regarding careers and Higher Education throughout their individual journey.  This is supported by enrolment to Morrisby for all Year 11, 12 and 13 pupils, giving them access to impartial guidance from which their tutors develop an action plan tailored to the strengths and desires of each student.

Opening the door to opportunity

An ongoing programme of activities provides information and guidance for students of all needs, interests and abilities to explore, ensuring every individual is fully equipped to make informed decisions regarding their future.

Bridgewater School measures the effectiveness of careers and inspiration activities by considering both the attainment and the destinations of pupils. Success will be reflected in higher numbers progressing to apprenticeships, universities, traineeships and other positive destinations such as employment or a further education college.

Life does not happen to you, it happens for you so go, make something of it.
