Parents

Careers Education

The Careers information, Education, Advice and Guidance which all students receive at SJBC will be communicated to parents through careers fairs, letters home, parent mail, open evenings and parents’ evenings.

SJBC have a robust careers programme that is delivered each academic year in the form of speakers, workshops and trips where students can apply knowledge and understanding from the classroom to the real world.

We welcome and appreciate parent support at each transition stage from Year 7 to 13.
