The careers library

The careers library is situated on the top floor of the main library, and has information about specific colleges and universities, as well as details on apprenticeships, gap years, different careers, employability skills and current local job vacancies.

Brochures and prospectuses are updated on an annual basis, whilst all other publications are reviewed biannually.

The careers library is open to all pupils, but certain time restrictions do apply unless pupils are attending a drop in session.

Years 7-9       can use the careers library ANY RECESS.
