Careers Education, Work Experience and Links With Industry and Employers

Careers education enables pupils to make wise and informed choices about their future in Higher Education and at work. It can also be a powerful motivator of students. Responsibility for information and advice about Higher and Further Education and Careers is shared by a team of teachers who maintain close liaison with Enfield Careers Service and with industry. The School is a member of the North London Chamber of Commerce.The school's careers provision include a very well stocked careers room which is open to all pupils. There is an extensive programme which seeks to ensure that every pupil receives appropriate information, advice, support and encouragement in choosing their own academic and career path. All students have access to Kudos, Careerscape and eCLIPS.

All students are expected to undergo a period of work experience at the end of Y11. Placements are found by the school or by the students themselves and many parents help by offering work opportunities.

The overwhelming majority of pupils age 16+ (approximately 95%) remain at School and take A/AS-level courses. Of those who leave at age 16, almost all transfer to other educational institutions of further education, Of those who leave aged 18, approximately 95% proceed to degree courses at Universities or to other forms of Higher Education in Music, Art and other specialisms. In recent years the number of Latymerians gaining places at Oxford and Cambridge Colleges has grown strongly to more than 20 each year. Former Latymer pupils who gain admission to St. John's College, Cambridge (Edward Latymer's college) or to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge (his father’s college) may apply for grants from those colleges from funds endowed for their benefit by the Latymer Foundation.
