At Barlby High School our vision is that every child should flourish and develop a real love of learning. We want the very best for all our students and have high expectations for all. This is born from the belief that every child is full of potential and has a unique role to play in society. We wish for all students to reach and exceed their full academic potential at Barlby High School and progress successfully into further and higher education, training and employment and develop a lifelong love of learning. To flourish and thrive in their personal development and to make a positive contribution as active citizens to the local, national and global community.
Our students have access to careers guidance and information from their first day with us in Year 7 until they move on to further education or training after their examinations in Year 11.
Please contact Tom McNaught-Roberts, who oversees the careers programme, firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com if you would like further information about our careers programme.
Students will have the opportunity to attend a careers guidance appointment with Mrs Janis Wilson (firstname.lastname@example.org), our independent Careers Advisor and students in other year groups can request an interview at any time during the year by speaking to their form tutor.

Barlby High School adheres to the Baker Clause Policy Statement stipulating that schools must ensure that a “range of education and training providers” have access to students from Year 7 to Year 11 so that the students can be informed of the technical education and apprenticeships options that are available to them post 16.
Barlby High School is working towards achieving and exceeding the eight Gatsby Benchmarks to enable high quality careers provision, working with the North Yorkshire Business Education Partnership.
There are regular opportunities for pupils to feedback on the careers programme including questionnaires through PSHE. These questionnaires alongside any verbal feedback enable the school to measure and assess the impact of the careers programme on pupils.
