Year 11 Future Destination

We have a superb track record of helping students in their future progression.

Many students have attained places at outstanding sixth forms leading on to prestigious university placements.

Following the Education Act 2011, from September 2012 schools and academies are responsible for making sure that their pupils get impartial careers information, advice and guidance.

James Hornsby School provides careers information, advice and guidance to all our young people. We ensure that every student is supported in making well informed choices about their next stage of education, training or employment.

School leaders have succeeded in bringing pupils together into a positive, caring school community which promotes high expectations for attitudes towards learning, relationships and attendance.
