Hall Cross Academy aims to provide every student with a positive and impartial careers experience. The careers programme displays the activities that all students take part in, however, we also recognise the importance of meeting student’s individual needs and interests and have attached the whole school career activities to evidence the wide support we offer to your son/daughter during their time at the academy.
