Mission Statement

All students should receive opportunities to access the appropriate level of Information, as well as advice and guidance, to allow them to make well informed and realistic decisions about their future in terms of both education and careers.


At Carleton High School we believe that students should be well prepared for the choices that they make during their education and in the future. Students should feel confident in being able to make appropriate decisions when deciding how to make informed career and educational choices, across a variety of routes. This preparation could be achieved through a variety of means such as taster sessions at local colleges and universities, as well as individual sessions with qualified advisors.
