Parmiter’s School is a high performing partially selective, mixed state secondary school situated in spacious grounds in Garston, Hertfordshire.
The school has its origins in the 1681 will of silk merchant Thomas Parmiter. He left property to endow six almshouses and one schoolhouse or room in Bethnal Green, London. In 1977, the decision was taken to move Parmiter’s to its present location. The school is classified as Outstanding by Ofsted.
Offered to all Year 10 students
Good careers advice and guidance is provided throughout the school, ensuring that students’ aspirations are met, and their future choices are kept as wide as possible for as long as possible. Age appropriate careers education and guidance is provided at school and continues afterwards, with many old Parmitarians returning to support careers fairs, presentations, enrichment programmes etc.
The Morrisby Profile is offered to all students in Year 10 and Morrisby services are also used with younger students within the school.
Having used the paper version for many years, initially the school was unsure that the online version would be as effective. They were pleased to find it was just as beneficial and the fact that the students can see their results straight away, keeps them engaged and focused to the point that many students would then continue with their careers research immediately.
This gives the students more ownership of their results which they can then share with their parents, who, with the cost of the online test being so affordable, are very keen for their child to use this test to support their careers researching process.
