When we talk about a ‘Career’, we don’t just mean work or a job – it is much more than that. Career is the red thread through your life that brings together learning, interests, skills and work. It is about the progress you make, the skills you learn, the knowledge you acquire and the decisions you make throughout your life. Here at Thomas Mills High School, we want to support you in that journey through various activities and events as well as personal guidance. We want to inspire and prepare you in the best way possible for your life after Thomas Mills and your future.
If you would like to know more about the things we do to achieve this, please take a look at our Careers Programme and join us for our Careers Events:

If you would like to talk to someone, please come and see Mrs Treeby or Mrs Bull in the Careers area of the library (upstairs). You can also speak to your tutor or subject teachers. We will all do our best to support you.
