Preparing our Students for their Next Steps

We want to ensure that every student at Hewett Academy leaves us with the skills and knowledge to make informed and ambitious decisions about their future.

We want every student to set their sights on high aspirations for the future and we will support them every step of the way. As part of our Careers and Aspirations Programme we offer our students workshops, guest speakers from universities and professionals, work experience, CV writing sessions and one-on-one guidance with a careers advisor. We also work closely with the county’s most prestigious sixth forms, including Jane Austen College and Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form to facilitate taster days for our Year 11 students.
