A key area for students when considering their future will be the careers options available. We believe it is important to ensure every student has the chance to learn more about a wide variety of employability options before they leave secondary school.
As a result our careers aim is ‘To ensure all students will be fully equipped with the knowledge and life skills required to choose, secure and succeed in positive future destinations.’
At the heart of our approach are three key questions designed to get students truly thinking.
- What do they want to achieve over their lifetime?
- What are they going to do when they leave Kings to help them get there?
- What can they start doing now to make sure this can happen?
Our approach is cross-curricular with opportunities to explore different careers within departments, through visiting speakers, business links, work experience, a comprehensive PSHE programme and our ‘Finding Our Futures’ programme. Students benefit from the strong links we have with the Holiday Inn, Allianz UK and the University of Surrey.
Supporting all this is our use of a dedicated careers website: U-Explore which can be accessed and used by parents and the surrounding community as well as our students. Each person can set up their own user account to explore opportunities. Click here for help registering.
