Hungerhill School Hungerhill


The Education Act (2011) has provided school with the opportunity and the freedom to deliver a programme of careers advice which best meets the needs and requirements of our students.

Hungerhill School are now working with John Jackson, a freelance Independent Careers Advisor, to provide a bespoke careers advice service to our students. We can consequently ensure that individual careers guidance interviews are available to all students at key times. Support is also always available at parents' evenings.

John has been continually involved in the delivery of careers advice to students and works directly with schools, delivering a service that is tailored to the needs of the institution.

Parents are encouraged and welcome to attend careers interviews. Parents requiring further information about the careers service support can reach John by email at:

HEPP Workshop 

Our Year 8 students have been taken part in a workshop presented by Hepp (Higher Education Progression Partnership). Students were introduced to the concept of choices, focusing on GCSE options and the skills needed for good decision making, further education and higher education. This was a fun, informative and interactive event where the students participated in 'Degree? or No Degree?' and 'Catchphrase' type activities. Hopefully our students feel more well informed about the choices they are currently making and the ones they will make throughout their time at Hungerhill.
