Careers – Year 11 focus

Year 11 Mock Interviews

Each year, Year 11 students complete a face-to-face, competency based interviews with an external business volunteer. These interviews have proved to be very successful and make a lasting impact on our students.

We have emphasised the importance of students having a high quality CV and letter of introduction. They complete their own cover email and CV in school, which is then sent to the interviewer from their school email account.

Here is a video from the Mock Interviews in 2017:

Post-16 options

Our careers programme for Year 11 students includes two information events that parents may wish to attend:

  • Sixth Form Opportunities at Wilmslow High School evening

Students interested in joining the sixth form might particularly benefit from reading the following advice: Six things you need to know before making your A Level choices

  • Opportunities Fair

At this event there will be representatives from all local FE Colleges and other post-16 opportunities providers such as the Armed Services, as well as a wide range of apprenticeship providers from the local area.
