Careers Information


Rayner Stephens High School is committed to providing high quality careers education, information, advice and guidance to every student. We have a sharp focus on careers and the guidance we offer is tailored to the needs of the individual student to promote self-awareness, decision making, employability skills, and independence whilst raising aspirations. It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities which are appropriate to students’ stages of career learning, planning and development. Students are entitled to CEIAG which meets professional standards of practice and which is person-centred, impartial and confidential.  Our aim is for all students to leave Rayner Stephens High School equipped with the skills and knowledge required to support their entry into further education or employment. All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 pathways that are suitable for them and to be able to manage their careers and sustain employability throughout their lives.
