Careers and Enterprise Plan
Careers advice, education and information
Maidenhill School offers an extensive careers information, advice and guidance syllabus which supports pupils to prepare for their future education and career pathways. This is embedded into the year 8-11 curriculum and is delivered by teachers, the SGS Schools’ Careers Service and through attending local careers events and visiting guest speakers. Maidenhill School’s careers programme is mapped against The Gatsby Benchmarks which is a set of guidelines about what makes the best careers provision in schools. Our 2017 Ofsted report states "Independent careers advice and guidance provided by the school is a strength."
