Careers Advice

At Foxfields we think it’s vitally important that we fully prepare our pupils for further education, training or employment once they move on from us.

From Year 9 we provide clear and relevant guidance for post 16 options. This includes independent careers advice, access to internal and external provision, local colleges and training providers. By working closely together we try to ensure a smooth and clear transition for all our pupils whatever they choose to do.

We understand that this can be a very daunting time for both pupils and parents/carers so we try to give as much support and guidance as possible.
We measure and assess the impact of our Careers Programme through pupil engagement, the percentage of NEET and through work skills accreditations.
We will hold an Annual Post 16 Information Evening where local businesses, colleges, agencies offering apprenticeships, alternative Post 16 providers and other outside agencies will be available to give advice to pupils and parent/carers from Year 9 onwards.

Our Careers Leader is Mr Matthew Page. If you have any queries about careers, higher education or work experience please contact him on 0116 344 0343 or

Meet our alumni
In this section you will get to hear about some of our fantastic former students. We will share their journey into the world of work or their next steps in education or training. We are very proud of our alumni and that many give time to come back and talk to our students.
Are you a former student from our school? We’d love to hear your story and perhaps feature you on our website or invite you to call back to our school and talk about your career pathway. There are lots of ways to do this but have a look at our Employer Area for some ideas and do get in touch!

Leicestershire’s Labour Market
We think Leicester and Leicestershire is an amazing place to live and work. As one of the most vibrant areas in the East Midlands there is a lot to shout about. In this section we will start to share information about different industry sectors, careers pathways, types of jobs and lots more for both parents/carers and students.
Quick fact… did you know in Leicester and Leicestershire over 99% of local businesses are micro (0-9 staff), small (10-49 staff) or medium enterprises (who employ 50 to 249 staff). If that sounds interesting, you could visit the World of Work website which has much more information on the local labour market with easy-to-read facts and figures.
