Careers in the Curriculum
It is never too early to start looking ahead! Students are encouraged to explore a variety of career options from Year 7, through PSHE sessions, assemblies and form time activities throughout their time at Bury Grammar Schools. We use Unifrog as a tool for students to explore their interests as well as through MOOCs, which helps to record extracurricular activities and to search for a particular degree, apprenticeship or alternative option that suits their career aspirations. We work closely with the academic and pastoral teams to support and guide students in achieving their career aspirations. We also encourage students to visit the UCAS website for additional career information. Through our Careers and Higher Education Convention, students have a wealth of opportunities to discover a wide range of careers. This biennial event is well supported by national and overseas universities, as well as large and small companies and individuals who students can speak to directly. Our Careers department is open to pupils of all ages and there are ‘drop in’ sessions at lunchtimes. If a pupil wishes to book a career interview, they can request a time with the Head of Careers, Ms Greene.
