Careers

Careers education, guidance and advice is an integral part of your child's curriculum and experience at The Academy at Shotton Hall and we are proud of our recognition through the Inspiring IAG Award scheme and involvement in the nationally significant Gatsby Pilot. 

Alongside our efforts, home support and guidance is critical to help your child make post-16 decisions that are best for them. To support this effort you may find it useful to look at our current student information portal or visit the following websites for post-16 option information.
