Careers

At The Windsor Boys’ School we strive to provide our boys with relevant careers information, advice and guidance throughout their time at the school.  Each year group has specific needs and we plan our support to meet these needs.

 

Career paths are changing and there are a wide range of opportunities available to young people and we aim to equip our boys with the skills, knowledge and information to help them make informed decisions at each stage of the planning for their future careers.

 

Mr Rooke is the Careers Leader at The Windsor Boys’ School and can be contacted at:
