Wallington County Grammar School is committed to providing independent and impartial Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for all students in order that they are informed about all available opportunities and equipped with the knowledge, experiences and attributes that will enable them to go on to achieve their personal best in the future.  We continually strive to develop links with parents and carers, alumni and employers to ensure our students have the capacity to navigate and succeed in a rapidly evolving and global employment landscape so that they can truly overcome ‘difficulties to the heights’. 

CEIAG is an integral part of the Co-Curricular vision and delivered to students through a broad combination of Form Time activities, the Wellbeing curriculum, SMSC Days, Clubs and Societies and other Co-curricular activities.  Throughout their time at school all students have opportunities to participate in events, encounter employers and receive personal guidance from our independent Careers Adviser and Co-curricular Learning Coordinator, both of whom are qualified guidance practitioners.  There is a small careers library and information about post-16 and post-18 options is on display for students.   In addition our Co-curricular Learning Coordinator sends a termly careers update to parents and carers; please click on the link below for the latest Careers Update.

We are thankful for the existing support from parents and carers and their crucial contribution to events including our Year 8 Options Event and Annual Science Conference, to name just two.  If you are interested in talking to students about your career journey to date, providing work experience opportunities, assisting with employability activities such as mock interviews or indeed have any other experience or skills you are willing to share with our students, please contact our Co-curricular Learning Coordinator on:-llenaghan@suttonmail.org
