    What is available at the Careers Centre?

    To visit Ms Carter or Mrs Mascaro you can either make an appointment through the webpage or just drop in to their desks on the ground floor at the eastern end. They are always happy to help.

    Year 10's are encouraged to have their work experience placement confirmed by the beginning of Term 2. Please apply for many places as you may not get your first choice and you don't want to miss out on a great week.
