The Perse School

Networking & Careers

From The Perse into the wider world...

Perse Business Network

The Perse Business Network is an opportunity for OPs, current parents, past parents, and friends of the School to meet and make connections.

Perse Business Network receptions take place twice a year. More information on upcoming events can be found here.


There are several different ways in which you can get involved in helping Perse students to make informed choices as they approach A-levels and take first steps in navigating career paths. Students benefit greatly from hearing of their predecessors’ experiences. Please do get in touch if you would like to get actively involved.

Every November the School holds a Careers Convention for Y11 and Sixth Form students. It is a chance for the students to speak to delegates representing a variety of organisations and professions.

During the summer vacation after Year 11 students typically take a couple of weeks on work placements. These are great opportunities to taste the world of work before they make crucial decisions about their future education choices.

Finally, our OP network has proved very helpful to many current students and younger OPs as they leave university or look to change careers. Your personal stories, individual advice or focussed talks all help to provide a sense of perspective and shed light on the world of opportunities.
