At Wright Robinson we believe that all students are entitled to impartial careers advice and provide this in a number of ways. In addition, every student gets a 1 to 1 interview in Year 10 with Mrs Pugh our full-time careers adviser, who is based in school.
The Careers Office is also somewhere all students have access to and has information on local colleges, apprenticeships and employment.
Wright Robinson offers a wide range of events and activities to support all students in their understanding of careers and future options.
