Investor in Careers Award


In 2016 we achieved the highest level of the “Investors in Careers Award”.

The assessor was in school for an entire day analysing data, a portfolio of evidence and interviewing staff and students about the quality of careers education at Valley Park School. Her findings were that;

“There is strong evidence for commitment to CEIAG from SLT and the whole school. Clear evidence of wide ranging and increasing links with employers and other opportunity providers. Outstanding support for the 6th form, both for students wishing to apply to university and those seeking alternative options.”

“There is a high level of commitment to CEIAG throughout the school supported by a professional and impartial approach to careers guidance from the school careers coordinator and the external provision.”
