Parents

Our purpose is to help our students find theirs. To assist students we have created a full school careers plan (which can be found on the careers policy page) with a list of the outcomes we wish to achieve. That way you can track your child’s journey through school. We understand how important careers decisions are. Therefore this page is designed to assist you with that process - by providing you with a range of resources that can help you.

For more information or to arrange a meeting, please call 0151 233 7373 or contact Antony Stagg at antony@kareers.co.uk

Careers Advice is not just for Young People, Parents/Carers also need support to help young people make tough and challenging decisions. Careers advice for parents is a website that has been set up by careers professionals and recommended by the UK Career Development Institute. ‘Careers Advice for Parents aims to give you an easy-to-read overview of all the essential facts on finding jobs and apprenticeships or choosing further and higher education courses which could make a real difference to your child’s future career prospects.’

A Caring Christian Environment

"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
