I have been meaning to write to let you know how supportive I have found the advice and service that Mrs Norris and Mrs Hopgood provide. My daughter has benefited from having this dynamic duo as a sounding board, as have my husband and I.  

I really value having this provision at this time.

There are lunchtime career talks, including ‘Life as a Lawyer’, ‘Careers in Oil and Gas’ and ‘How to make your CV stand out from the crowd,’ and a plethora of career related visits, activities and events for all year groups.

In partnership with St Benedict’s alumni

The Careers Department works closely with the Development Office, in order to draw on the extensive and impressive experience of St Benedict’s alumni. Our alumni are extremely generous in giving their time, advice and work experience opportunities to St Benedict’s pupils, and are hugely involved in delivering the biennial St Benedict’s Career Fair and a Networking and Mentoring programme.
