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. 

Year 10 and 11 students are given lots of opportunities to prepare for the next stage of their education journey in the run up to their final days at Calthorpe. Students are highly encouraged to attend the numerous colleges and to research all the available options, including Apprenticeships and T levels as well as the more traditional A level options. The links below give full details about how to apply, deadlines and open day events.

Farnborough 6th Form is our partner college and as such, interviews are usually held in school early in the Spring Term.

‘Get the Jump’, a new Skills for Life campaign, will help young people aged 14-19 understand all the education and training choices available to them and how they compare.  See this link for details.
