Careers Lead

John Ruskin School makes impartial careers advice available to all students. Advice is focused at key decision points; namely the choice of GCSEs on moving from Year 9 into Year 10 and the choice of KS5 pathways as students move beyond GCSEs. Students gain understanding of careers options and develop careers related skills, such as employability skills and CV writing, through PSHE lessons from Year 7 to 11. Support is also given for sixth form, college and apprenticeship applications. Further information is available via the Careers Library.

John Ruskin School offers regular assembly careers events with professionals and ex students who have moved into the world of work. The John Ruskin careers fair provides an invaluable source of information for post-16 options for all students.

Our Careers lead is Mrs S Tennant, who can be contacted on or the school telephone number.
