Careers Convention 2019
Pupils and parents from Deer Park and Kingshill are invited to our 2019 Careers Convention.
Cirencester Deer Park School and Cirencester Kingshill School
Tuesday 8 October 2019, 6–8pm
at Cirencester Deer Park School
Cirencester Deer Park School and Cirencester Kingshill School work together to help improve the opportunities that are available to our pupils. We jointly organise an annual Careers Convention, for all pupils in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11.
The event this year will be held at Cirencester Deer Park School and we hope that you and your son/daughter will attend this important event. We already have around 50 organisations confirmed, ranging from companies to colleges to universities. The wealth of information available will apply to all year groups.
Year 8: These pupils may think it will be a long time before they need to make choices for their future but it will soon be upon them. Attending the Convention will help them to start considering their futures.
Year 9: Pupils will soon be considering option choices for Key Stage 4. This will be an excellent opportunity to look at universities and Further Education colleges to see what entry requirements are needed, as well as speak to employers to discover the skills and qualifications required in various occupational areas.
Year 10 and Year 11: These pupils will soon be making choices for post 16 progression, whether it is college, sixth form or training. There will be people on hand to answer questions. It will also be worth looking at universities to gain an idea of entry requirements and the vast number of courses available.
Over the next few months all these young people will have to make decisions that will affect their future. It is vital that they are equipped with as much information as possible. We very much look forward to seeing you at Deer Park on Tuesday 8 October 2019.

POST 16 INFORMATION EVENING
Deer Park Year 11 parents and pupils are invited to our Post 16 Information Evening on Thursday 26 September 2019, 6.30pm in the Main Hall. The evening is structured to inform about the wide range of pathways available to pupils once they move on from Deer Park next summer. When choosing any institution for further study, it is important to research the courses offered and make a preliminary visit. We publish a list of open day/evening events at local sixth forms and colleges, which you can access on our Careers page.
We will shortly be asking all our Year 11 pupils to complete a short online survey to see what tailored support we can offer them.
