Careers support

Senior School

Preparation for life

We help our students develop skills and contacts to give them a competitive edge in a changing and increasingly challenging workplace.

We offer a broad and unique programme of careers guidance, events and support in line with the Government recommended Gatsby benchmarks. As a member of the GDST, we also offer an exclusive range of exceptional career and personal development opportunities.

Our Head of Careers has responsibility for careers information, education and guidance using the Unifrog careers programme with support from the Heads of Year and Heads of Department. Students can access advice and guidance designed to support them in making A Level, Higher Education and career choices.

“We pride ourself on providing the most up to date, personalised and relevant careers information for every one of our students. National and local labour market information, government skills policies and GDST connections mean students are well informed, whilst being given the opportunities to explore their own career aspirations.”

— Miss L Mickleburgh, Head of Careers

“Unifrog provides all the information required to make important decisions about future careers and what subjects, courses and training our students can do to reach their destination. As well as creating an achievement digital profile, it is packed with information on what employers are looking for, what employees can earn and what qualifications students will need to reach their career goals.”

— Miss L Mickleburgh, Head of Careers

Outside inspiration

Being girls-first, we endeavour to arrange external speaker visits if a student is interested in a particular career so whatever their aspirations and ambitions, our students can find personal support and guidance throughout their time at Norwich High School for Girls.

We attend external careers events, and in Year 11, all students receive an independent and impartial face-to-face careers guidance meeting with Beacon East, our qualified careers advisor. The Careers Programme is delivered with the help of Form Tutors in PSHE lessons, Big Skies Week, form time and selected assemblies.
