In 2017, Sutton High School was re-awarded the Gold Career Mark.
Sutton High School is proud to have been the first independent school in the country to achieve this prestigious award. It is external recognition of the high quality careers education, information, advice and guidance provided at school.
We want our students to make wise, well-informed choices, suited to the individual. We encourage our girls to be ambitious, to be challenged and to be excited about future opportunities and to this end, we provide a strong careers curriculum offering personal guidance and support. Our Head of Careers, Mrs Elizabeth Berner, is a qualified guidance practitioner and has developed a structured programme of dedicated careers lessons, stand-alone activities and individual guidance interviews which start in Year 7 and continue beyond school.
Developing self-awareness, exploring a broad range of occupations and developing decision-making skills which can be applied to subject and career choices are central to the careers programme. Information evenings for parents are a regular feature, helping parents to be aware of the careers and higher education process.
