At XP we have always had careers at the heart of our expeditions whether it’s working together with experts, out on fieldwork or creating our products. Given the importance of our career, its time to further develop and improve our programme throughout the school, not forgetting our XP16 provision
I would like to invite you check out our XP Careers HQ Website
The website gives information on our career policy and programme we offer, helpful links and tools to aid guidance in GCSE options, post-16 & post-18 opportunities including university, apprenticeships & jobs of the future as well as details of careers related events happening throughout the school. This website is designed to be continuously updated to make sure our learners:
- Raise aspirations
- Develop confidence in making decisions and career choices
- Develop an understanding of the world of work and how to respond to changes in today’s workplace
Please explore the website and I hope you find it useful when supporting our young people with these all important decisions. I would appreciate feedback on the website and please, do not hesitate to contact me Kathryn Burns, Careers Lead, [email protected] or submit form below Enjoy!

Students in Years 10 and Year 11 have been given their consent forms. Check with your son/daughter that they have taken their form. The school vaccination nurses are in school on 10th November. If your son/daughter are currently in year 8 and 9 and did not attend school on their designated covid vaccine day and so missed their chance, then you can fill in the consent form and return to the school office to be added to the list. Please read the letter that goes with consenting and return the consent form to the school office by the end of this week (15th October 2021). (A reminder if any student has tested positive for Covid 30 days before the vaccine date they cannot have the covid vaccine).

Good morning, we are at the stage where we need specific information about your son / daughter for the optional fieldwork. We would kindly request that if your son / daughter does not have a passport, that you apply for this as soon as possible. You can do this online, or pick up a form at a main Post Office. The travel company will need passport information in the next few weeks, and we would appreciate your support with this. If your son / daughter already has a passport, please could they bring it in and hand it to their Crew Leader, who will photocopy the necessary information.
To ensure that all participants are medically insured for the optional fieldwork, your son / daughter will EITHER need an EHIC card, OR a GHIC card. If the EHIC card will still be valid for the end of June next year, there is no need to apply for a GHIC card. If the latter is needed, please do this online, following the Government’s website for this. This is free of charge. Again, we would ask you to apply for this card, if needed, as soon as possible.
If there are any specific questions about either of these two documents, please ask at the Parents Meeting on Wednesday 6th October, we are looking forward to this, and are more than happy to help and support.
Please find below our academic school year Calendar which can be accessed by selecting staff then calendars on the websites for term dates and upcoming staff days. Our current staff days are Friday 17th September and Monday 20th September.
