A SCARBOROUGH school has received a major accolade for its role in guiding students on their future career path.

Scalby School has picked up a North Yorkshire Individual Advice and Guidance Gold Award which reflects its work in advising pupils on the important next step in their lives.

The school is the first in North Yorkshire to gain the honour under its new structure and was given the title for its approach in informing and guiding students on careers and their learning, with one to one advice from peer and professional mentors.

John Jones, associate assistant headteacher for Individual Advice and Guidance said: “At Scalby School we realise school and education is about more than just exam results.

“We feel a responsibility towards our community to not only help our students to gain relevant qualifications, but to equip them for their futures beyond Scalby School.

“We talk to them about what options to pursue to get what they want from their lives which enables them to explore and experience these options to make sure they are right for them.”
