Careers/Pathways and Choices for learners

There are many different pathways for students to take once you leave School. The sheer amount of choice can often be mind boggling. We support our students with relevant Independent advice to find an outcome suited to their needs.

We link with the local authority who provide a YPSS careers advisor who provides information and guidance to all of out pupils starting at Year 7.

We pride ourselves in supporting the post 16 transition for our learners and provide transition plans for students wishing to progress in their chosen area.

Of the 2019 school leavers, 90% went onto a positive destination (Education, Employment or Training).

The Orchard follow Gatsby principles and our Gatsby Benchmark Audit shows that careers, advice and guidance is a strength of the school scoring consistently higher than national averages.
