College & Careers

Careers advice and guidance starts in Y7 and continues in each year group.  This takes the form of outside speakers, events, work place visits and is embedded across the curriculum.

In your final year here at Calthorpe Park, there are plenty of opportunities for you to prepare for what you will do and where you will go after leaving school.  This year, colleges are running virtual open events and we will post links on this page as soon as possible.  Check the college websites for full details and also for application forms or information about how to apply, including their deadlines.  Farnborough 6th Form is our partner college, so if you apply to them, their tutors usually come into school to conduct interviews, usually in the Spring term.  For any queries, please contact Ms Wayman or Mrs Al-Dabagh, or email:
