Careers at Leek High School

It is important that every student is fully supported and guided through the process of planning for their future after school. We have a full programme of careers education to help our students develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand themselves, research the opportunities that are available, make informed decisions and move successfully on to the next stage in their lives. Leek High School is proud to be nationally accredited by the Quality in Careers Standard as fully meeting all the accreditation criteria incorporating the Gatsby Benchmarks. Read more about this in our press release here.


The Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) supports Leek High with careers provision. The role of the CEC is to link schools and colleges to local employers to help them deliver world class careers support for all young people by building networks, supporting Careers Leaders in school and using the Gatsby Benchmarks as a best practice standard.

Our careers programme is delivered through form time, PSHCE, special events, enrichment programmes, visits, assemblies and across the curriculum. To find out more about the Leek High School Careers Programme, you can contact:
