Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

New Hall School has a dedicated Careers Officer, Miss Lucy O’Brien, who supports all students in our Senior Division, from Year 7 through to Year 11. Providing clear, impartial and individual information, advice and guidance. This is available to all students, ensuring they are supported with their progression throughout New Hall, from choosing their GCSE options, to progression onto Further Education and Apprenticeships, along with starting to understand the skills needed for employment and mapping out their career goals.

Drop in Sessions

Open drop in sessions are available throughout the week, however bookable time slots for Careers Guidance meetings are also available. Students can drop in to discuss anything Careers related including, but not limited to, Career Choices, CV writing, Further Education and Apprenticeship shortlisting applications.
