Careers

At Heckmondwike Grammar School we have a well-resourced careers department.

The Careers Leader is Mr Oxby, and the team is managed by Mrs Mistry and Mrs Lawler, who are both experienced professionally-qualified Careers and Higher Education Advisers. They are based in the Careers Resource Centre, providing advice and guidance to students.

The department provide a broad-ranging and in-depth programme of Personal Development and Tutorial lessons, careers events and presentations for students in each year group from year 7 to year 13. This includes a wide range of employers and Higher Education institutions to inspire students and broaden their horizons, to enable students to make fully informed choices.
