Careers and Higher Education

At RGS we pride ourselves on having a whole-school approach to careers and higher education, with departments providing subject-specific information and relevant opportunities to all of our students throughout their time here.

In Year 10 there is a specific Careers course delivered through PSHCE sessions however all students, regardless of year group, will have numerous opportunities to meet professionals and find out about careers and higher education through organised assemblies, presentations and events.

We deliver a planned and effective careers and higher education programme, designed to translate inspiration from the workplace and academia into motivation and achievement in the classroom. Whether a student’s ultimate aim is university, a gap year, an apprenticeship or other work-based education, we will always promote the best interests of each boy. Please click on the link for further information: 

Our careers and higher education provision deliver impartial advice and provide access to independent guidance on the full range of post-16 education options and training opportunities available. We encourage our students to consider all options, advise them how to research the most appropriate pathways and gain suitable experience. Then we help them to put their plans into action.

All students will have access to our dedicated Careers Office and Resource Room which provides both IT provision and reference materials, we also work with outside agencies to provide specialist guidance when required.

Careerometer can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations, help you learn about different occupations and identify potential careers. It provides access to a selection of UK headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects for different occupations, as well as description of the occupation. Simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. You can then look up another two occupations and compare.
