We are committed to implementing a careers programme that enables all students to learn about themselves and the myriad of career options available to them that meet their personal values, character and interests. We aim for our students to understand how their academic and pastoral development and achievements prepares them for their future working lives. Our aim is that students leave Meridian High School, well equipped to access a range of career pathways.
At Meridian High School we have an increasing number of students selecting sixth form as opposed to a College, is testimony to the raising aspirations amongst our students and the values of resilience, ambition and respect.
Our destinations data is not showing on the Department of Education 2017 Information About Schools due to the change of URN number when the school converted to GLF Multiacademy Trust.
|2018 leavers||2019 leavers||2020 leavers||2021 leavers|
|Sixth form (A level)||13||14||24||44|
|No selection recorded||1||20||9||6|
The data shows the raising aspirations of our students with the increasing number of students choosing to study A Levels for further education. There is a wide range of providers used by our students and we encourage our students to visit in preparation for their next steps.
Morrisby Careers Profiling Program
All of our students have access to Morrisby.
First time login to Morrisby requires the school code which is shared with students in their Google Classroom tutor rooms. If you have the code, you can sign up here. We recommend students register with their school email address.
Students who already have an account but have forgotten their passwords can request a password reset if they know the email address they registered with or contact Mrs Watson who will generate a reactivation code for you.
We have a weekly careers focus - Future Fridays - as part of our tutor group personal development programme. Friday is also the day we share our weekly careers newsletter with students and parents.
Our careers strategy outlines in detail our approach to careers at Meridian High School and experiences and opportunities open to year groups during their time with us. This is reviewed annually.
Our Careers Lead is Mrs Georgina Watson who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
