Careers

Find the right future for you

Our intent at St. Anne’s School is to provide pupils with a diverse and inclusive careers curriculum that allows them the opportunities to understand the world of work, by acquiring the knowledge, understanding, experience, skills and confidence to succeed, not only in school and work, but in their daily lives as a young adult and beyond.

We also aim to provide each pupil with unique and tailored opportunities to explore their personal interests, skills, strengths and passions and to complement their subject-based learning and ability to discover potential future paths in life; we do this with the support of our teachers and Tutor.
Part of this is to provide pupils with the ability to become responsible citizens, contributing to society, the community, the economy and the wider world, through having the desire and confidence to explore their possibilities, create their own opportunities, reflect on their goals and career plans and be able to successfully balance their work and personal life. This will help contribute to young people having self-awareness, self-determination, having a positive self-esteem and ultimately a positive mental health and wellbeing.
 

It's never too early to start thinking about your career.

By getting students to understand more about their skills, strengths and interests, they'll be able to make more informed decisions.

At St.Anne's we aim to cover numerous activities to prepare students for the world of work including:

  • having a professionally written CV
  • being able to write a letter of application for a job
  • be interviewed
  • prepare for option choices for KS4
