Future Pathways and Vision 

At Langdon Park School we value the importance of embedding a strong Future Pathways programme for all students. We believe in having a careers programme from Year 7 and Year 8 as this is more impactful on our student’s development.

Throughout their journey at Langdon Park, all students receive a variety of careers information and guidance through workshops, talks from professionals, careers fairs, workplace visits, and one to one guidance interviews with careers advisors. In addition, we run our annual Volunteer Fair and Careers Festival in school. This gives students the opportunity to gain experience and explore different career paths.
