Student Information

We want to make sure that you make informed choices about your ambitious destinations in the future. During the school day you have access to lots of resources and opportunities; career lessons, encounters with employers and work experience to name but a few!

One of our best resources is our Career Advisor Mr Milne. All our students in year 11 and year 13 will have a meeting with Mr Milne during the school year. If you are in any other year group and think you would benefit with a career meeting, please send Mr Milne an email via and request to meet.


Unifrog is an excellent career resource that you can use to explore different careers, education routes and even write your own CV!

When you have logged in, you can start to use the platform to explore different subjects, courses and complete the personality quiz.

Whenever you complete something on Unifrog, make sure you save your progress – there is a ‘locker’ feature where you can save documents (for example, if you have completed a dance exam outside of school, you can save a copy).

Exploring pathways

This is very useful when it comes to writing CV’s, completing applications, applying through UCAS etc. as it can be easy to forget about all the things you have done. Click 'Upload New Item' to upload any relevant documents.

Teachers can also upload documents to your folder, for example, Mr Milne may save a copy of your careers action plan here.

A big part of Unifrog is searching for opportunities. You can look at university courses, apprenticeships, colleges and sixth forms, and more. You can save your searches to come back to later to show Ms Nutman or another teacher. You can search by your favourite subject and narrow down results by distance. You should select a minimum of 4 courses to save. If you download the search, lots of important information will be available to you, including entry requirements and an overview of assessment methods.
