Hungerhill School


At Hungerhill, our careers education and guidance programme is designed to build skills in our students for lifelong success in a diverse and ever-changing world of further education and work. Together with a range of career professionals, businesses and training providers we will support students’ career development in a number of ways including:

  • Information and discussion in lessons and assemblies to help them make decisions about their future.
  • Activities and events such as our 16+ Destinations Evening for Year 11, employability days, mock interviews and careers events for all year groups.
  • Access to careers advice in a variety of ways including one-to-one appointments and drop-in sessions during school time with the opportunity to speak to our Independent Careers Adviser.  
  • Open Door availability of our Careers Lead for any questions or concerns or help with applications.
  • Information and updates on a number of noticeboards around school, common resources on the school network, plasma screens, the school website and our Twitter page. (follow us on Twitter at @HHCareersDept).
