Few of us know what we want to do with the rest of our lives when we are at school. But beginning to think broadly about careers helps students make better choices both at GCSE and A Level.

Without creating undue pressure, we are keen that students do invest some time and effort researching the options.

Holbrook Academy’s Careers Lead is Mrs Denise Tinker.

Our specialist careers advisor is Mrs Sarah Pawlewski of Career Directions.

Holbrook Academy Careers Programme for Years 7-11:  Careers Programme

Careers Policy


As part of the careers guidance and education programme we deliver at Holbrook Academy, students have access to Kudos, the latest program from CASCAID.  Kudos is accessible online and we are encouraging the use of it at home to involve parents/carers with the important decisions students have to make about their future options.

Kudos will help students to assess their interests and skills, as well as letting them explore and research different education and career options, enabling them to make informed decisions about their future.  To access the program, please visit
