Higher Education, Careers and Apprenticeship Focus

At Dowdales we have the highest aspirations for all our students and we aim high, supporting and challenging them to achieve their potential.

We believe that students should shine at Dowdales and our commitment is to challenge and support all students so that they achieve academic excellence and have the highest aspirations for themselves.

Throughout the school year we welcome employees and apprentices from many local firms who come to meet with students to give an insight in to the many roles available within their company as well as the qualifications needed to succeed in their industry.

These visits are an integral part of our programme in helping students to make important life choices as they plan for their future.
