Careers and Alumni

Careers : Our Vision

Our careers provision aims to empower all students and guide both parents and employers to help them make confident, impartial and informed choices about their future career options. Regardless of background, our approach focuses on providing purpose, direction and opportunities to all our students, enabling them to flourish as individuals, become highly employable and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives. 

We fully endorse the Gatsby Benchmarks and use them to guide, plan and monitor the effectiveness of our careers programme. As part of our commitment to informing our students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we welcome requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to our students via assemblies, lunchtime lectures, or other careers- related events that take place at the school. In addition, we also organise opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis, supporting GCSE, post 16 or post 18 option choices.

Our careers provision is constantly evolving, ensuring each of our students receives individual, impartial and detailed advice on their next steps beyond their time at Northampton School for Girls. 

We are in the early stages of developing our Alumni profiles and welcome the opportunity to hear from any of our former students that would be interested in supporting our work, or that would be willing to update us on their progress since leaving Northampton School for Girls.
