Welcome to our Guidance programme here at Christ the King Catholic High School & Sixth Form Centre.
Our Guidance programme encompasses the key aspects and the topical issues that our pupils need to understand in order to be prepared for life as a student and beyond. The programme is delivered through a variety of lessons, assemblies, drop-down days and through external speakers. We pride ourselves in the opportunities we afford our pupils to prepare for the future.
