Graham School takes the responsibility to prepare our students for life after 16 very seriously. We pride ourselves on providing independent careers advice to ensure that our students secure a progression route that will help them achieve their ambitions.

We also have our own Careers Advisor, Mrs Ruth Green E: r.green@grahamschool.org

We offer students and families the opportunity to book an appointment to see the Careers Advisor. The Careers Advisor is in school on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week and can provide tailored information, advice and guidance relating to the post-16 options available to students. To book an appointment to see the Careers Advisor, please telephone the school on 01723 366451 or return a Career Consultation Request Form to the Careers Office.

With the support of colleges, training providers, universities and employers, we provide a range of experiences and information sessions to help students to understand their post-16 options. The programme of events includes opportunities to take part in work experience, university and college visits/taster sessions and ‘Meet the Employer’ sessions.
