Careers

John Henry Newman School provides careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) to students at all stages of their school career.  We firmly believe that it is our role to ensure students are informed, have opportunities to reflect, have access to a wide range of careers opportunities and are thus able to make informed choices about each step of their career.
