School librarian Angi Beckett has collated the information and links and gave a demonstration during a launch event on Wednesday.

She attended a virtual careers course with careers co-ordinator Lindsay Byford and it as the inspiration for the site.

Ms Byford said: "It is a wonderful source of information and is easy for form tutors to use with their classes. It is far more accessible thann a piece of paper in a big folder."

Year 10 student Adam Cross, 15, said: "It's great to be able to look at the sixth form courses that are available. I can start thinking about what A-level courses I would like to do soon rather than later."

Specially printed stickers have been made available for all students to promote the web page.
