Careers Information

Years 7-8

Students in Years 7-8 students are introduced to the world of work through a range of tutor time activities that inspire and excite students to build aspirations and ambitions for their adult lives.  There will opportunities for visits from outside speakers and students will be encouraged to see a connection between hard work and having a positive attitude to learning with their success in achieving their own goals.

Years 9

As a critical decision-making year, students are supported throughout to make well informed and guided choices about their studies through to GCSE.  A range of careers and subject talks help students to understand the subjects they will need to study to go on to the next steps in their own development and career aspirations.  We will make available a range of software tools to help students build-up their knowledge of a range of careers pathways they could take. The school will support students to understand the changing patterns of the labour market.  They will be able to find out about Post 16 study at college or another school and compare this with the wide range of apprenticeships and training programmes on offer locally.  Additional careers advice will be available for students who would like extra support.

Year 10 and Year 11

Students preparing for their exams also face challenging decisions about their next steps Post 16.  There are an ever growing number of qualifications and courses available and we will support students and their families to understand the choices that are available and to make appropriate decisions.  As well as careers fairs, visiting speakers, one to one careers advice and guidance, trips and activities, students will have a planned tutorial programme to support them throughout.

The school is committed to offering an exceptionally high quality careers programme to support all our students in achieving their aspirations.  We aim to support parents with a calendar of Parents and Families Information Evenings to ensure that everyone who is able to support our young people is involved and well informed.

Improved New GCSE Results for Twickenham School

Improved New GCSE Results for Twickenham School Twickenham School Year 11 students have achieved better in their GCSEs. Whilst there is no direct comparison with previous year’s results because all of the examinations are new and English and mathematics are graded 1-9 instead of A*-G it is clear that students have done better than last year in these tough new examinations. 60% of students gained a grade 4+ in English and mathematics and 55% of students achieved 5 GCSEs at A*-C (4+ in English and mathematics).  The DfE have made clear that there will be very few Grade 9s awarded in English and maths yet we were very pleased to see 3 students (all in maths) achieved this new benchmark. Particular mention should go to: Daniel Clouter, Ludmilla Branda and Sidney Thomas who all achieved a grade 9 in Mathematics Hannah McLelland 7 A*-As Ludmilla Branda 7 A*-As Zachhary Philippou 7 A*- As Headteacher, Assal Ruse, said, “I am delighted for the students and staff who have worked incredibly hard to achieve these results with all new examinations.  It has been a tough two years for all schools teaching new specifications and not always with access to new practice papers or grade boundaries.  As such I am happy the school has enabled the students to do as well as they did and be able to access the next stage of their education with the results they needed. These results reflect the hard work of students and the professional commitment of all of our teaching and support staff at Twickenham School. As a school, we have met and exceeded some challenging targets for this cohort of students, and I would want to thank our families too, as they have been so supportive yet again throughout the long examination season.
