CEIAG and Boomerang
Careers Connect work with The Observatory School to provide impartial careers information for our pupils. Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) is available to all students from Year 5 through to Year 11. A careers programme of study is delivered through our Life-skills and PSHE/PSD lessons which is supported by form time activities and numerous opportunities for business, college and community exposure, visits, activities, experiences, assemblies and discussions.
- The careers programme will be reviewed in July of every academic year and, if required, revised.
- We are always interested in developing partnerships and engagement with all stakeholders. If teachers, parents, students, employers or providers and local organisations want further information or would like to contribute to the programme, please get in touch directly with the school’s careers coordinator using the contact details listed below.
- Feedback is also gathered from employers and other organisations to assess the success of an experience. This ensures we can tailor our careers programme to provide the best experience for both students and partners.

The aim of the Boomerang Program is to keep former students and staff in touch with each other and the school.
The Observatory School keep in touch with former pupils in several ways. We hold an Annual Awards Ceremony in school, usually near the start of the autumn term, when we offer the opportunity to meet up with old friends and look round the school, recall memories from their time here and see the changes that have occurred since then. The pupils also receive their certificates for their achievements from the summer term.
We also have a dedicated phone number for former pupils to contact for if they need any support once they leave school. Our Pastoral team are on hand to offer support to pupils whenever they need guidance or support. This may be support with college to filling out application forms for job applications.
