Careers Education is a vital part of our curriculum.  All of our students receive a full programme of careers education which starts in Year 7 and runs through all year groups.  All students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities which are delivered by both visiting professionals and our own teaching staff.

We aim to raise aspirations, challenge stereotypes and encourage pupils to consider a wide range of careers. This works hand in hand with the school’s Mission statement to help pupils realise their own dignity and discover their own unique purpose. Through our mission statement we acknowledge that each person is a unique individual and strive to respect each individual irrespective of circumstance, gender, race or creed. We will encourage everyone to develop their own personality and educate the whole person within a loving and caring Christian environment. To this end we will promote a happy and caring environment within which each individual can develop their potential to the full.

Our Careers Programme

Our Careers Programme has four strands: careers lessons, one-to-one careers support, Higher Education links and Employer links.

  • Careers lessons and support

  • Links with Higher Education

At St Peter’s we have established strong links with a range of local and national Higher Education Establishments.  Once again these opportunities are not limited to Year 11 pupils.  Strong working links exist between St Peter’s and Teesside University, Durham University as well as Oxbridge Universities.  Our pupils have the opportunities to visit Higher Education Establishments and meet students, participate in workshops whilst being exposed to the opportunities open to them.  Visits from a range of Universities into school are also well established and provide our pupils with valuable insight into what it takes to get to university, what life is like there and the opportunities that present themselves to Graduates.
