Preparation for Adulthood and Careers

Here at Fiveways School we focus on Preparation for Adulthood from the earliest year groups, developing the skills that our young people will need to live a good adult life as they progress through the school.  We realise that every one of our young people needs an individualised approach to prepare for adulthood and we offer a bespoke curriculum for every pupil which is appropriately linked to a national careers strategy and includes; encounters with employers and employees, experiences of workplaces, encounters with further education provision, personal guidance for our young people and advice for parents, informed by current career and labour market information.

Our Alumni event was a huge success and it was fabulous to see so many former pupils in our school hall.  It was incredibly interesting to gather some longer term destinations data and catch up with everyone to find out what they are doing now and how they think Fiveways School has helped to shape their adult lives.  We are looking forward to creating an alumni group who can help us to plan for an exciting long term future for all our pupils.
