During these uncertain times it is vitally important that as parents we support our children on their educational journey. As such I have attached links to useful websites which can be accessed to support your child’s careers guidance. To help make links between subjects and careers, success at schools, has provided a range of subject guides which can be downloaded from the link here.
Year 11: If your son or daughter is still considering their options for next year or would like to know more about what they can progress onto following their college or 6th form education, they can use one of the links on the last page for more information.
Year 10: Moving into your final year at Kirkby High School, you will need to plan for what you hope to do when you leave school. Your options include but are not limited to 6th form colleges, vocational colleges and apprenticeships. Please take this time away from school to plan and begin considering your applications. To help with this you I have attached a copy a website designed to support young people considering their next steps. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/a-level/sixth-form-college-application-personal-statements
