We will be holding an open morning in school on Tuesday 29 September at 9.30am.

We would request that you wear appropriate PPE while on the school site.  We can only admit limited numbers per household and you will not be able to enter any classrooms.

If you would like to book a place, please contact Karen Hayward on admin@linksec.org.uk.  Please note that in light of restrictions on numbers overall, you may not be guaranteed a tour.

Further dates will be posted in due course.

Careers Guidance

Whilst at The Link Secondary School, students learn the skills and attitudes required to enable them to become as independent as they can be and to prepare for adulthood. We aim for students to have an enriched and stimulating curriculum to give them every opportunity to reach their full potential.

The Link Secondary School supports careers development through high quality and personalised work experience opportunities. We enjoy high quality relationships with a number of external organisations and local businesses to provide opportunities for students to work in ‘real’ settings.  We are always looking for additional opportunities to inspire and educate our students about the world of work. If you think you could help please contact the school office on 020 8688 7691.

Careers Programme 

At each stage of the learning journey, students are supported and encouraged to consider their future beyond school. Our Careers Programme lists some of the elements of careers information, advice and guidance that a student will encounter during their time with us.
