Career & University

Careers education, course selection and University information, advice and guidance is an essential part of the support we offer to students at Sunmarke School. Effective careers education and university application support help prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. It can help them to make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. As options for young people become more varied and complex, it is vital that we support them to develop the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices for their future.  If you have any questions about our Career and University provision, please contact Ms. Amber Koetsier Singh, our Career and Well Being Counselor.
