At John Kyrle High School we are proud of our students and do everything we can to help them prepare for the future. All staff do their very best to ensure every one of our students is happy, healthy and successful. We are committed to providing all our students in Years 7 to 13 with a programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance. All students are encouraged to make informed decisions whilst investigating possible career choices. We aim to inspire our young people through their experience of the whole curriculum whilst raising aspiration and providing quality and diversity.
Careers education is delivered by tutors in all year groups, in conjunction with the school’s dedicated careers programme.
The careers programme also incorporates Unifrog, a single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications.
Unifrog is a one-stop-shop for students across all year groups regardless of academic ability.
There are many strengths to Unifrog, including great layout, intuitive design and ease of use. Staff are an integral part of the process and they can track and encourage students to search for and compare opportunities available to them.
Year 12 & 13 students both have access to the careers convention and also attend a national UCAS conference with universities, careers and gap year advice in Bristol during the spring term. Our 'happy, healthy, successful' programme includes advice on apprenticeships, gap year and university finance. Tutors play a key role in supporting students through their chosen pathway and all students receive mentoring from the Head of sixth form and advice and guidance from Mrs Knapper.
