Welcome to the designated Careers section of the Malmesbury School website.
Careers education is a highly valued and important part of what we offer students at Malmesbury School to prepare them for their future.
We are incredibly proud of the provision in curriculum, extra-curricular and information and guidance offered to each and every student.
As you can see from the various organisations that monitor and audit our provision you can be assured that CEIAG at Malmesbury is relevant, up to date, impartial and engaging to students from Year 7- 13.
Ofsted monitoring visit 2015: Students say that they benefit from the range of activities and from the visiting speakers representing different careers. This develops students’ understanding of the link between their education and potential careers effectively, raising their aspirations for the future. As a result of this well-targeted careers education, more disadvantaged students enter further education, training or employment at the end of Year 11. The vast majority of disadvantaged students who enter the sixth form progress to university.
Career mark: The school is a beacon of excellence in their careers provision and provides a standard which is the envy of many other schools in the area and those within their MAT. They are generous with their time and expertise. They are active members of the careers collaborative and generously share their time and expertise with others. They are to be commended for their work with other schools and the Welsh Assembly.
Gatsby Benchmarks - published by the DfE for all schools and colleges (Malmesbury is a case study for Benchmark 8). Going back as far as 2011, careers provision has continually been rated good to outstanding by all stakeholders. Parents are very happy with the level of careers advice on offer. The head teacher was delighted to be the first school in the county to receive the Quality in Careers Standard and to be rated Gold.
Hopefully this page has given you answers to any questions you may have about our provision but if you would like to know more, or you feel you could contribute to our provision please do not hesitate to get in touch.
“We are delighted to be the first School in Wiltshire to receive the Gold Careers Mark. Making sure that our students get the right advice and guidance at the right points in their time at school is really important to us.” Tim Gilson, Headteacher.

Working to achieve a world-leading education for all young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
Apprenticeships are key to growing a skilled and competitive workforce that meets the needs of employers and drives business growth. They are real jobs with training, available in more than 170 industries and 1500 job roles. Through their apprenticeship, apprentices gain the technical knowledge, practical experience and wider skills they need for their immediate job and future career.
T Levels are new 2-year, technical programmes designed with employers to give young people the skills that industry needs. From 2020, they will give students aged 16 to 18 a technical alternative to A levels and will help them to get a skilled job.
You could get a bursary to help with education-related costs if you’re aged 16 to 19 and:
