Higher Education & Careers

Careers and FutureFit

All the knowledge in the world means nothing if you are unsure what to do with it.

Our Future Fit Department encourage pupils to consider life beyond the classroom by providing extensive guidance and practical help, augmented by our lively and influential alumnae network.

Careers lessons start in Year 7 and regular enterprise events, work experience, careers fairs and visiting lecturers illuminate a world of potential career paths.

Internship Programme

The Internship Programme enables students to find their voice, stand out from the crowd and succeed in entering top universities and rewarding careers.

Although rigorous, the aim is to prepare students for the competitive job market ahead.  

The programme involves:

  • Pairing pupils with their chosen field
  • CV skills and application
  • Cover letter skills and application
  • Practice interviews prior to submitting their application
  • Fully integrating pupils into their chosen internship 

The Future

Young people leaving PHC are Future Fit, ready to join the world's creative, innovative and energised workforce. 

The firm foundations of academic rigour, life skills and emotional wellbeing gained at PHC mean students are ready for the challenges they will face in the future. Our students will be leaders in the 21st Century and we ensure they are instilled with the confidence, knowledge and empathy that make them truly empowered.

Our pupils don’t just succeed, they exceed.
