Career Profiles

Nearly 60 OAs have written anonymous career profiles for a valuable resource which boys can browse and the Head of Career Guidance can use when discussing different careers with pupils.

These career profiles have been put into an easy-to-read, eye-catching format and are available to pupils through the Career Guidance pages of Firefly, the School intranet study site.

Many thanks to all OAs who have kindly contributed to this useful resource so far. If you would like to add your own career profile, please contact the Head of Career Guidance, Michael Triff, at
