Careers

Careers at Childwall Sports and Science Academy and 6th form will engage all our students as part of their academic and personal development to discover, learn and aspire to a variety of ambitious careers and educational pathways.

We provide our students with multiple learning opportunities to engage with the world of work through encounters with employers, professionals and opportunity providers.
