Gatsby Benchmarks


For students in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 we have a comprehensive programme to prepare students for the world of work which is in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks.  This framework is used in order to improve careers provision in schools.

We measure the impact of this programme by tracking leavers destinations post Highfield Littleport.  Last year we had 3 leavers and all moved on to college courses linked to their individual interests and career aspirations.
