Rainham School for Girls represents a culture of high aspiration, high expectation and success.

Careers education, information, advice and guidance is recognised as playing an important role in motivating our students, promoting equality of opportunity and maximising their academic and personal achievements. We provide a planned programme of careers education for all students in years 7-13, to prepare them for the opportunities and challenges of adult and working life.Our school is committed to ensuring there is an opportunity for a range of education and training providers to access students, for the purpose of informing them about approved technical education qualifications and apprenticeships.  We are fully aware of the responsibility to set students on the path that will secure the best outcome which will enable them to progress in education and work and give employers the highly skilled people they need. That means acting impartially, in line with the statutory duty, and not showing bias towards any route, be that academic or technical.

We endeavour to ensure that all students are aware of all routes to higher skills and are able to access information on technical options and apprenticeships (The Department of Education, July 2021: “Baker Clause”: supporting students to understand the full range of education and training options, and the Provider Access Legislation, January 2023).

We have a Careers coordinator who is available to students during term time and on exam results days.
