Careers advice and guidance
Oaklands College is hosting a Virtual Open Day on the 21st November from 10am - 3pm
Students in Year 7 and 11 receive careers advice prior to making option choices for Key Stage 3/4 and Post-16. These students are provided with interviews to help them decide their future, and YCH Services for Young People regularly visit the school. YCH Services for Young People workers attend parents‘ evenings to advise on the choice of options and students are encouraged to use the extensive Connexions Library and to consult Staff; parents are welcome by arrangement. Our careers Advisor is Mrs Farrell. Should you have any queries or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you go to Falconer School? If you’re a former student who would like to support current students, the school would love to hear from you.
Today, there are students in the assembly hall where you once sat, facing similar challenges and opportunities that you did. Being connected to you could really help them.
More than 60,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They can inspire young people in a number of ways; as a work experience provider, mentor, or by sharing your story to success.
It doesn’t matter when you left school, whether you’re in further education, or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away. You can help inspire the students today.
You can inspire the students if they can relate to that someone who went to the same school, grew up in the same community, has achieved a fulfilling and satisfying job. It will help our students see that it’s possible for them too! It’s really important for all students to be motivated to succeed in the working world and hear first-hand from relevant people in interesting jobs can make a huge difference

Religious Studies, Assemblies and Collective Worship
Falconer is a community with shared values and a clearly identified ethos. These values are essentially Christian in nature, but we welcome students from any religious background. Religious Studies is delivered within Humanities at Key Stages 3 and 4 and through Extended Learning Days.
We have two assemblies a week which reflect the religious calendar, celebratory occasions and special events in the life of the school. During registration each morning there is a theme of the week and connected Thoughts for the Day. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of the RS programme and collective worship provided.
A co-ordinated programme of sex education, both formal and informal, is delivered to all students as and when appropriate. It is related to the age and gender of students and to their identified needs. It is dealt with in a sympathetic and sensitive manner, with group discussions taking place in an atmosphere of mutual trust, respect and confidence. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own behaviour and moral development.
