Careers Guidance

Whilst at Brantridge School, students learn the skills and attitudes required to enable them to become as independent as they can be and to prepare for adulthood. We aim for students to have an enriched and stimulating curriculum to give them every opportunity to reach their full potential.

Brantridge School supports careers development through high quality and personalised work experience opportunities. We enjoy high quality relationships with a number of external organisations and local businesses to provide opportunities for students to work in ‘real’ settings.  We are always looking for additional opportunities to inspire and educate our students about the world of work. We are currently looking for businesses to support us with the following:

  • STEM workshops
  • Careers talks
  • 6th form and university information

If you think you could help please contact our Careers Lead, Danielle Harry by email: d.harry@brantridge-school.co.uk or tel: 01444 400228

Careers Programme 

At each stage of the learning journey, students are supported and encouraged to consider their future beyond school. Our Careers Programme lists some of the elements of careers information, advice and guidance that a student will encounter during their time with us.

The Gatsby Benchmarks – what are they?

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a key measure of the effectiveness of career advice. They are also a very important part of the Government’s career strategy.

  • A Stable Careers Programme 
  • Learning from Career and Labour Market Information 
  • Addressing the Needs of Each Pupil 
  • Linking Curriculum Learning to Careers
  • Encounters with Employers and Employees
  • Experiences of Workplaces
  • Encounters With Further Education
  • Personal Guidance

The communication between home and school is excellent.
