Careers In The Classroom

We believe that careers education is not something that should be taught in isolation, but informed by what is learnt in the academic curriculum too. For instance, we have a range of speakers who come in to talk to students during Science Week.

Throughout the school’s Science curriculum applications to industry and professional practice are highlighted. In developing and delivering our STEM programmes we have worked with the Royal Academy of Engineering, the MET Office, the Environment Agency, Babcock, Atkins Engineering, RNAS, Flybe, the Institute of Civil Engineers, as well as Exeter University.

Students are encouraged to get involved in careers related competitions at all levels, from the local to the international. Recently we have students who have worked on engineering challenges at Seaton Tramway, as well as on the national BP Ultimate STEM Challenge and the international VEX Robotics scheme. Our students have enjoyed success in business related competitions, such as the London Institute of Banking and Finance’s Student Investor challenge and the ICAEW’s national accountancy competition.
