Our vision is to provide a journey through Sedbergh School that equips pupils to make confident, informed choices about their future pathways; from university to apprenticeships to employment or other options.
The Pathways curriculum is integral to the PSHE programme ‘Living in the Wider World’ and meets UK National Standards for careers and work-related education. We offer opportunities beyond the classroom, particularly through linkages with our valued OS community, to career guidance, networking and seminars.
Our programme utilises enrichment programmes such as Ivy House plus additional information and guidance at appropriate stages to support pupils in making their own decisions regarding the pathway they pursue. Parental engagement with the Pathways programme is highly valued.
Throughout pupils’ journey, specialised platforms support engagement and record their Pathways progress and achievements.
