Careers

The Priory Academy LSST has statutory responsibility for securing access to independent and impartial careers guidance for all students in Years 8-13. In the context of this duty, careers guidance consists of services and programmes intended to assist students to make and implement education, training and occupation choices and to learn how to manage their careers.   Further information can be found in our 'Careers Strategy' document below and by using the menu on the left.

The Priory Academy LSST - Careers Strategy

The Priory Academy LSST measures the impact of our Careers Programme in multiple ways:

  • Destination data - Year 11 2021: LSST Sixth Form 67%, FE/college 24%, other Sixth Form 3%, moved out of area 1%, apprenticeship 3%, armed forces 0.3% and football courses 2%.  Year 13 2021: university (including degree apprenticeships) 76%, FE/college 2%, employment 9%, apprenticeship (not including degree apprenticeships) 5%, gap year 5% and other 3%. Six of our students went on to study at either Oxford or Cambridge. Six students went on to study medicine.
  • Level of NEETs (Young people Not in Education, Employment or Training) - for 2021 there is one NEET from the Year 11 cohort (less than 0.5%) and zero from Year 13.
  • Student voice
  • Feedback from the Pastoral Team and SEND Department
  • Many of our Careers Events such as our Careers Fair and Work Experience placements are evaluated using input from a variety of stakeholders.

Further discussion about the student voice process and gathering feedback from a variety of stakeholder can be arranged by contacting Mr Sleight on gsleight@prioryacadmies.co.uk.
