Careers at Bishop Stopford School (CEAIG)
Two of our core curriculum intents as a school are to:
- *Prepare our students and equip them for future success and life in the wider world
- *Instil a greater understanding of our local area and the world in which we live
To ensure this we have developed a diverse programme of support and engagement activities to ensure our students are well-equipped to make informed choices at the end of each key stage.
The success of our careers programme is demonstrated by the proportion of our students that remain within education or employment at the end of both KS4 and KS5 where our figures are consistently above the national average.
