  • lensTo investigate a career that is of interest to you
  • lensTo describe the skills and qualities necessary for that career
  • lensTo explore the changing sectors of industry and work

In Year 8

You will have to make your subject choices for GCSE. It is important that you keep as broad a range of subjects as possible over and above the core subjects.

If you or your parents would like some help with these decisions then make an appointment to see Miss Orton or Miss Wootton.

Don’t forget to use Fast Tomato and E-Clips.

For the password to E-Clips, see Miss Orton's team or refer to the blue noticeboard in the Careers Office.
