Kingdown School has recently achieved the prestigious ‘Career Mark’ quality award in recognition of the excellent careers education, information, advice and guidance the school provides to its students. To achieve the award, the school was required to submit a portfolio of evidence prior to an assessment day in January, during which Career Mark assessors visited school and spoke to both staff and students about the support on offer.

Mr Marlow, the former school careers advisor, said “It’s really positive to be formally recognised for the work we do to help our students develop career ideas and goals, plan for their future and prepare for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life”.

If you or your organisation would like to contribute to the career learning of students at Kingdown School in any way (for example through offering work experience, giving a career insight talks or helping out at careers days), please contact Ms Gale on 01985 224249 or vjg@kingdown.wilts.sch.uk or please leave a comment below.
