Lawn Manor Academy offers extensive careers advice for all pupils.

Dan Jacklin our Head of Aspirations and Futures is available for all pupils during the school week to help guide pupils through options, next steps, post 16 choices, apprenticeships and to provide further advice on further/higher education and training.

Every year we hold a Careers Fair at the School as part of our futures day where information and advice about jobs, further and higher education can be obtained. All the local colleges and sixth forms attend, along with Universities and local business offering Apprenticeships.

We have developed good relations with the local employers who support us with our mock interview day in Year 11 and our work experience in Year 10. Our local colleges are available to provide information and advice on our parent’s evening. We have a comprehensive careers programme which starts when the pupils arrive in Year 7 until they leave us in Year 11.
