The Norwood School

Careers

We are fortunate to have Alix Boyle, our Independent Careers Advisor, in school each week. She is based in S17 on the top corridor. Students are issued with an appointment card on the day of their scheduled meeting to excuse them out of class. As well as group workshops, assemblies and small group meetings, all students in Yr 10, 11 and Sixth Form will receive a one to one interview at some point throughout the year. If you feel that you would like to see Alix again for a follow up meeting or are simply seeking more advice, then please make an appointment to see her through your head of year.

If parents wish to speak to Alix with their children, then please make sure you find the time to meet her at Parents Evening.
