At The Mandeville School we believe in building the ‘roots’ as well as the ‘shoots’ in each of our students. This means developing them so they can become responsible citizens as well as focusing on achieving their academic grades when they sit their examinations in Year 11 and Sixth Form. As part of the PSHCE programme within the school every student has access to careers education and information.
We aim to ensure that our students have the confidence to make decisions that will impact positively on their lives and have all of the information they need to make decisions about their futures after school. As our students start making these vital choices in Year 8 with their GCSE options we begin our careers education in Year 7. Over the course of their time with us our students will have the opportunity to have guidance sessions, bespoke assemblies run by professionals, lessons taught during tutor time, careers fairs, trips out of school and support in writing application forms and university applications (UCAS). This year we have also had the exciting opportunity to have a bespoke mentoring programme called ‘Captain of my Ship’ which is currently running with students in Years 8 and 9, where local employers are coming in to speak with and mentor our students.
Throughout their time at The Mandeville School every student has the opportunity to access information through the taught curriculum time as well as outside of school hours.
