We have a dedicated careers team who offer a range of information, advice and guidance to all students.

Our Careers Advisor, Stacey Lowe, is situated in the St Francis of Assisi room every Friday and appointments can be booked by either speaking to Form Tutors or by contacting Miss McLenaghan or via the school main phone number.

 

The team works closely with a variety of external organisations to ensure we provide the best possible service to all our students.

The Government's careers strategy aims to make sure that all young people in secondary education get a programme of advice and guidance that is stable, structured and delivered by individuals with the right skills and experience.

 

At St Gregory’s Catholic High School we use the Gatsby Benchmarks to measure the quality of our provision.
