The careers department is located centrally within school, and is open to all girls, their parents and staff. Individual consultations are available by appointment in the lunch hour.
The department co-ordinates an extensive programme of visits, speakers and events for each year, alongside a biennial careers convention, UCAS application support, psychometric testing, work experience, mock interviews with feedback, and taught sessions as part of the PSHCE programme for Years 6-11.
