Careers Strategy

The Government’s Careers Strategy aims to make sure that all young people in secondary education access a programme of advice and guidance that is stable, structured and delivered by individuals with the right skills and experience.

At Severndale Specialist Academy, we use the Gatsby Benchmarks to measure the quality of our provision.

The contact for Severndale Specialist Academy’s Career Strategy is Katie Wrenshall-Jones, who can be contacted by telephone on 01743 563225 or via the following email:
