Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance

Have you thought about your future?

College? Sixth Form? Apprenticeship?

What is your ideal job? What careers interest you?

At Thornhill Academy we strive to offer impartial and realistic careers information, advice and guidance to all of our pupils from year 7 to year 11. We recognise that our pupils will be entering a very competitive labour market and because of this, we aim to equip all of our pupils with, not only the knowledge they will need, but also skills such as financial capability, enterprise and employability.

Each year group page contains information and resources that will be used to deliver the CEIAG program in school and that pupils may use independently to find out more.

Our academy careers advisor is:

Neil Crabtree

Northern Rights Pathfinder

Year 11 will all be offered a one to one guidance interview with Neil. Neil will be available for drop in questions before school and at break and lunchtime on a Monday in the small hall hub.

Our careers lead is.... Mrs Crane room B5
