How to support your child’s future career choices

At Biddenham we understand the journey from year 7 to finishing school post 18 can be bewildering, for both you and your child. There are numerous decisions to be made – Key Stage 4 options, post 16 choices, and finally supporting your child’s choices for post 18.

There are many websites that offer advice, guidance and information on further education and careers.
