Aspirations and Careers

York High School is committed to developing the life chances of all students, and aims to encourage and inspire them through a comprehensive programme of careers education.

We are currently working towards our QiCS Award, which recognises outstanding practice in careers education.

Currently, our students participate in a range of activities which include learning about themselves: their personality, strengths and qualities. They will begin to explore different career options in the modern world and gain an awareness of how they begin to research and plan various career paths.

Through our strong partnership with NCOP, YHS students will meet with employers and other outside agencies to gain independent and impartial advice about the options which are best suited to them as individuals. 

The careers curriculum is enriched through external support with opportunities to engage with external teams on a regular basis.

Should you wish to contact our aspirations and careers team to give feedback, or seek help, please contact Mrs Callan on e.callan@yorkhighschool.co.uk
