Aspirations Careers Department


Welcome to the Huntington School Aspirations (Careers) Department Page. On this page, and those linked to it, you will find a range of information to support your child on their journey through Huntington School and off into the wider world of work, education and training.

At Huntington, we are committed to providing the best possible careers support for our students, families and staff. As part of this commitment, we are currently undertaking the Quality in Careers Standard, which is the national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in secondary schools.

We have now completed the first stage of this assessment (intent) showing that we have everything in place to complete the standard. We will be submitting further evidence over the next several months and aim to be fully accredited in the near future. Below is a certificate confirming our intent certification:

Huntington School Alumni in Careers

As you will see from our overview and our Aspirations Fair, we love to engage with employers when planning and delivering our CEIAG. We are also keen to involve Huntington School Alumni as much as possible in careers' activities, so our current students can be inspired by past generations. If you are a Huntington Alumni and would like to get more involved, please add yourself to our Alumni network here Huntington School - Alumni or contact to find out more about how you can be involved.
