Post-16 Virtual Event 2020

Post-16 Virtual Event 2020

Welcome from Miss Ward


It's at this time of year we would normally be getting ready to host our Post-16 Progression evening, where Year 10 and 11 students could have a look at what is on offer to them as they leave us either next year or the year after.


Find out more about CEIAG and why it's such a vital part of life here at St Cuthbert's and why it makes Miss Ward's, Personal Development Lead, job so fun and exciting. 

What's it all about?

Things may be a little different this year but we are still offering the same opportunity for our students to look at lots of information from a range of providers, in order to help them make their decision of where their next steps may take them.


Take a look below at the Post-16 Providers who we work closely with across the year and who are part of our ever-growing community.
