The Careers department provides all students with access to information advice and guidance to help them make realistic choices to reach their goals. We aim to guide students to reach their full potential and to progress to their next best step.

Please use the tabs on the right, and the attachments below, for further information for Parents/Carers, Employers/Providers, Students and Teaching Staff.

Our Careers Programme is reviewed annually, next review will take place Autumn 2023. Parents, students and teachers are regularly asked for feedback on our careers programme via parental questionnaires, staff questionnaires and student feedback requests following careers events and lessons. Students are also periodically asked to complete the Compass+ Future Skills Questionnaire to give us an overview of their careers learning and understanding. This in formation is used to inform our programme moving forward. 


January 2023 - Update regarding the strengthened Provider Access Legislation. In order to ensure we are fully compliant with the strengthened provider access legislation, Poynton High School provide a Post 16 Options Day at the start of March. Students from Year 8 to Year 13 will be attending. With 20 post 16 options providers invited to attend, Poynton students will have the opportunity to explore their options extensively. 

Coming soon.... We are pleased to be welcoming the BBC Careers Roadshow to school on the 14th February.  More information to follow. 


An important element to our careers activities is the input of previous students. If you are an ex-PHS student and you would be willing to come in to school to share your career journey, please get in touch with Mrs Bibby.
