All students have access to careers education information, advice and guidance from year 7-13, including specific career sessions on LMI, CV writing, job interviews, applying for apprenticeships/ Higher Education.


When our school first opened in 1989 as Macmillan College, central to the ethos of this new organisation was a close working relationship between education and business.

Through this relationship, students would eventually leave the school with a good understanding of the potential careers they could have and would also have the skills to be able to successfully enter the job market.

Macmillan Academy continues to support our students to make well informed decisions by providing access to impartial and blended CEIAG through the curriculum, enrichments and off site activities. It is a whole school vision to prepare students for the readiness of the working world and to forge links with parents, families and the local community.


The effectiveness of which, is reflected by our high number of students moving into sixth form, further education and apprenticeships.

We are indebted to all the businesses, organisations and colleges who give their time so generously to support our students.
