At Rugby, our aim is to inform and excite pupils about the opportunities available to them while in School and also looking ahead to the future.

The Careers Department engages and inspires pupils so they feel confident about their decisions and choices when planning the next stage in their academic lives. We offer a comprehensive and blended programme of Higher Education lessons, one-to-one guidance sessions, interactive events, career briefings, specialist speakers, interview training, GAP year planning and assistance with targeted and productive work experience placements.

The department works closely with teaching staff and tutors to guide and support pupils through their selection of GCSE and A level subjects, and then university and course choices. We ensure pupils are well informed and move on from Rugby with an action plan for the future supported by a good academic record, a developing CV and a readiness to meet the challenges of university and the working world beyond.
