The Hollyfield School believes in raising the aspirations and ambitions of all its students, improving their eventual employability and life chances by providing a planned programme of careers education, individual advice and guidance; and work-related learning for all students in Years 7-13. The school bases its careers programme on the eight Gatsby Benchmarks. 

The Hollyfield school is committed to independent and impartial guidance. To address this, the school employs a Careers Adviser. This role is currently shared with Grey Court as part of a joint agreement between the Multi Academy Trust to deliver impartial careers information, advice and guidance.
