As a parent or carer, you have a leading role when your child is making decisions about their career. Talking to your child about careers is important. Not only when they are making big decisions, such as subject choices and what to do when they leave school, but also throughout their school lives and beyond. It’s important to be prepared and feel confident when they come to you for advice.

A well as the other information on this page, below is lots of useful information and links to websites to support you in assisting your child with their future career choices. Your son/daughter can complete Barclays life skills lessons at home which will give them access to work experience opportunities at Barclays, and learn essential life skills and careers related learning.

“I love BHS because it really does feel like a family. All staff and students know each other, are extremely supportive of one another and show amazing levels of respect throughout the school. There really isn’t another school like it!”
