At Key Stage 3 the academy focuses on the inspiration agenda seeking to connect our learners to the world of work and raise aspirations. Developing enterprise skills we work with partners to create these positive interactions, such as Barclays Life Skills programme which is run with pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9. Through assemblies and class activities and online careers programmes, pupils get to investigate occupations and develop self-awareness which will shape their future job preferences. In addition Year 9 pupils will go through a programme of assemblies, information sessions and individual guidance interviews which will help them make sound subject choices for Key Stage 4.
