      Careers

      Careers education begins in the Lower Fourth (Year 7) as part of the school's comprehensive PSHEE programme and continues throughout the girls' schooling. Most of the girls will complete the COA careers testing and have an interview with an independent careers adviser to raise their awareness of potential careers and they are encouraged to seek work experience or work shadowing as appropriate after GCSE exams.

      When the girls reach the Sixth Form, we offer a range of: interviews, visits, advice sessions, talks, networking sessions and tests which aim to  help the girls decide the best path for them after school. We also offer a Careers Networking Service through our Old Girls Office; former students are regularly in touch to offer advice, training, work placements or job opportunities, and our Old Girls Office regularly arranges workshops and visits to Old Girls working in specific industries.

      If you have a query about careers advice in school, please email Mrs Utting via pau@sherborne.com and she will be happy to help.
