Careers and Apprenticeships

At The Highfield School, our careers programme is designed to inform and equip every student in Year 7 to Year 13 with the information and options needed to ensure they have a successful and smooth transition from education into employment.  

Each Year group will receive a tailored careers programme designed to inspire you, raise your aspirations and help you access different career pathways.
