Higher and further education providers

St Thomas More Catholic School prides itself on ensuring our young people have informed access to the full range of opportunities available to them post 16. Our external Careers Advisor offers impartial advice to all Year 11 students during their one-to-one meeting. Any information you would like sharing with students can be sent to the relevant Head of Year or the Careers Advisor directly.

In addition to the above we also provide a number of opportunities for access to providers. We have a number of events integrated into the school careers programme. We will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents. Please speak to the careers lead Mrs N Prior to identify the most suitable opportunity for you. The school policy on safeguarding sets out the school’s approach to allowing providers into school as visitors to talk to our students.
