Options after Year 11

We want our year 11 students to be fully prepared for the next steps when they leave The Matthew Arnold School. To this end we continue to prepare them for 'After year 11'. We have Colleges, Sixth Forms, Apprenticeship Providers and Universities coming in to speak to them in assembly during September, October and November. In addition to this they also have a whole year group PSHE day where we will run 5 different workshops for them.

These will include the following:

  • CV writing workshops,  delivered by BP
  • Study skills,  delivered by Strode’s College
  • Interview techniques and application filling, delivered by Innervate Careers
  • Apprenticeships  delivered by Brooklands Apprenticeship Department
  • Understanding money, national insurance, income tax and budgeting. This will be a lesson delivered by our own teachers.

A large number of year 11 have already had the opportunity to have their careers interview here at school; if your son or daughter has not yet had an interview, please ask them to sign up with me or you can e-mail me to request an interview at - jlyde@matthew-arnold.surrey.sch.uk
