Careers and Moving On

Equipping our young people to leave school and move successfully in to further education, employment or training has always held high priority at Acle.  The careers programme we offer takes a practical approach, giving students the employability skills so essential to both finding and being successful in their chosen path.

We are committed to careers and work-related learning which includes work experience, visitors in school, opportunities for visits out and a Year 11 programme which has kept our school’s record of leavers entering further education and training amongst the very best in the UK.

Please contact Mr Nic Bliss for more information on careers education at Acle.
