Parliament Hill School

High achieving and happy

Careers

Our programme begins in Year 7 when students are encouraged to have high aspirations. A presentation to Year 7 shows how Parli helped former students on their journey to success and to highlight the opportunities that are there to be seized. 

Working with a plethora of partners and local providers, the programme becomes more bespoke as students progress through the school. At all times, we encourage students to aim high and challenge stereotypes and traditional perspectives of the world of work.   The school places a particular focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). 

We aim to provide high quality opportunities to all students and to provide contacts with the professions for students without family contacts of their own.  We work closely with a number of universities including Imperial College London, Wadham College Oxford, Girton College Cambridge, SOAS, UCL, The Royal Veterinary College, St Georges Medical School and City University to ensure that every girl experiences a day in a university before completing their GCSEs and offers Morrisby profiling tests for the most able students.. 

Additional in school options offered to a cohort of girls include very successful high quality vocational courses in Media, Health and Social Care and Childcare courses and qualifications and successful partnerships with local vocational course providers including the London College of Beauty Therapy. As you can see we have contacts with a broad spectrum of partners and this list is always being added to on a regular basis.
