School’s Careers Leaders:

At Marshland we pride ourselves on offering a wide range of high quality careers support.
We run a range of events throughout the year, which gives them the opportunity to build employability skills and confidence through having a “real-life” interview with a local employer, university or training provider. We also offer smaller events, often involving visitors from Further and Higher Education providers. Careers activities are also spread throughout various lessons during curriculum work, and woven in with school life in general.
We have links with both the UEA and the University of Lincoln, as well as being very closely involved with Springwood High School Sixth Form, where our students have guaranteed places. Springwood achieves some of the highest A-Level results in the county, with some achievements higher than local private schools.
Students will also get the chance to take part in Taster Days at Springwood or the College of West Anglia, who we also have a great relationship with.
Year 11s get continued personal support as they require it throughout the year whilst making their plans and applications.
Character and Culture
Character and Culture education at Marshland High School not only supports our core values but gives our students the knowledge, skills, and attributes they will need to prepare themselves for life and work in the future, building on key skills such as leadership, resilience and initiative.
