Careers Welcome

Pupils receive expert help to gain the reading and writing skills they need to do well in all subjects. As a result, pupils make good progress

There is much joy in this school. Pupils value their teachers, and the rich and diverse community in which they learn

Teachers take account of individual pupils’ needs in their good lesson planning. They make sure that pupils, even those who arrive at unusual points in the school year, are quickly assimilated and make good progress

Teaching is strong in the sixth form. Teachers are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. They show great commitment. Students are fulsome in their praise of the impact their teachers have had on their future education

Lessons are characterised by strong and positive relationships between pupils and teachers. Teachers know pupils well. Often teachers target the learning that individual pupils need because they know them so well

In key stages 1 and 2 teachers plan many opportunities for pupils to deepen their knowledge, understanding and skills.

We at The Bemrose School and Sixth Form give our students throughout their Primary, Secondary and Sixth Form education the access to free impartial careers information and guidance, with the opportunity to complete compulsory work experience placements to enable our students to gain experience of the world of work and employability expectations.

Careers sessions are delivered throughout their education with us from Year 7-13 with the Primary School having access to Employer Encounters and a Careers and Aspirations Programme. Meaningful activities are created throughout each term, including visits to Post 16 and 18 providers , Enterprise Days, Mock Interviews, CV Workshops, Cultural Visits and Employee Encounters. Each student throughout their education journey at The Bemrose School will receive 1:1 careers interviews by our in-house Careers Lead Claire Pavitt.

Incorporated within the careers programme is engagement with an extensive range of businesses and local employers, working together with employers enables us to stay updated with the labour market, in addition to providing students the chance to experience high quality enterprise activities and employability skills. We are fortunate to be within the ‘Adopt a School’ programme and are pleased to have Kevin Dodds from G F Tomlinson as our Enterprise Advisor.
