Our dedicated non-teaching team is available to offer clear information, advice and guidance to all of our students.  Miss Walker, our CEIAG Officer will interview year 11 students and offer guidance and support as they make their Post 16 choices, she will also assist year 9 students in making appropriate GCSE options.  Miss Walker and her team will also ensure that a range of activities are on offer to all students ranging from 7 to 13.

The Careers Leader at St Peter’s School is Mrs A Matthew, Assistant Headteacher.  She completed her Careers Leader training through TeachFirst in 2019.  She can be contacted on amatthew@stpetershuntingdon.org or 01480 846783.  Information about our careers programme and how we review the impact of the programme can found in the Careers Strategy and Careers Programme documents listed below.  The Careers Strategy was last updated in July 2021, and will be reviewed in July 2022.

Working with Businesses

We are proud of the relationships that we have developed with local businesses and employers but we are always looking at how we can develop this further. Whether it is working with students 1:1, being part of our Careers Fair, or offering us advice and guidance, we would be happy to have more businesses on board to help strengthen our careers provision.  If you would like to be part of our students’ career journeys, please contact Mrs Cole, our Careers Administrator, at lcole@stpetershuntingdon.org and we can discuss how you could further enhance our work.

We are constantly evaluating the impact of our Careers Programme, and are always looking at ways to improve our offer. The careers programme will be evaluated again in July 2021, when we hope to be able to broadened our provision again following the COVID19 pandemic.

How do we ensure that we offer impartial CEIAG?

  • The team organise a range of external visits to help all students receive impartial CEIAG. In the past we have attended the Wood Green Careers event, the Skills East Careers event in Norwich and we have taken students to other providers, such as HRC and PRC,  to show them what their future options are.
  • We are building strong links with local businesses, employers and trainers so that we can ensure that our students understand the opportunities that are available to them.  Our Careers Fair which is held in July for Year 10 students is well attended by local businesses, and all students have the opportunity to ask employees questions that will allow them to make an informed judgement about their futures.
  • We are also working with outside agencies such as the Chambers of Commerce, DWP, NEACO and NXG to ensure that our students have access to as much information as possible.
