Careers Week – 1st – 5th March

This week (1st March to 5th March) everyone is celebrating National Careers Week, and so are the Central Futures team!

The Central Futures programme, our school’s careers programme, is committed to ensuring that through a high-quality education provision all our young people are prepared for, and have access to, the career pathway of their choice. And although the work we do with our young people is extremely important to achieving this goal, we also believe that our parents and carers deserve the same level of support, so they can work with their children towards a future that is both fulfilling and successful.

The NCW Parents Guide is a great resource to support parents and carers in having these conversations with their young people and provide valuable information to help our community learn about the wealth of options our young people have.

The Central Futures team is always here to answer all questions our parents and carers might have about future career options, so please do not hesitate to get in touch. The team, and their contact details, can be found on our website:

School Overview for Universities and Employers

Central Foundation Boys’ School is an Inner London comprehensive situated in Islington near the Old Street Roundabout. Islington is the eighth most deprived area in the country and the fourth most deprived in London, and this deprivation could present many potential barriers to our students’ academic achievement. Almost three quarters of our students are eligible for the pupil premium, just under two thirds speak English as an additional language, and one in five are disabled or have special educational needs, all of which are well above the national average. Despite these potential barriers, we have an excellent record of sending students to the most-selective universities in the country: 42 went in 2020 alone.
