This is an exciting time because in September we will begin the first year 11 our school has ever had. What an amazing opportunity to offer the very best we can to our students, as they prepare to move on to further education, apprenticeships or full time employed work.

All that we do at RFSS is aimed towards the future of our students. We endeavour to prepare them for adulthood and the world of work, not only through our curriculum, but very specifically by delivering a thorough, complete and engaging careers programme, which begins in year 7 and continues through to sixth form and beyond.


It is our passionate belief 

that every child has the 

right to achieve their very 

best in whatever field of 

work they pursue. 


It is our passionate belief that every child has the right to achieve their very best in whatever field of work they pursue. With that in mind, it is our intention that every child is offered relevant and engaging career opportunities that are tailored towards their individual skills and needs.


The Gatsby Benchmarks are a statutory framework consisting of 8 guidelines, which define the very best careers provision a secondary school can offer its students. The 8 benchmarks are as follows:


  1. A stable careers programme.

  2. Learning from career and labour market information.

  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil.

  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers.

  5. Encounters with employers and employees.

  6. Experiences of workplaces.

  7. Encounters with further and higher education.

  8. Personal guidance.​​
