Stretford High School
State school in North West UK
"We have so much respect for the Unifrog platform. It's easy to use as a platform. The people we've dealt with are responsive, supportive, willing to help us in any way that we need and work with us to develop the platform so that it works in the best possible way for our students. We really love it."
Ms Helen Adshead, Careers Lead and Mrs Philippa Latham, Deputy Head of Department EE
“Unifrog has massively benefited our students at Stretford High School. From Year 7 to 11 it has opened a wide range of careers resources that they would not have access to, and it's all in one place, which is really useful for them."
“In my opinion, the benefits to students of the Unifrog platform are enormous. They're able, from Year 7 right through to Year 11, to record all their achievements, research their hopes and dreams, and bring those to reality in terms of discovering what career opportunities are there for them and where the right college and university will be for them."
“The thing I love the most about Unifrog is it is very bright and colourful and it catches your eye if you're scrolling past something. A lot of the buttons are like big and brightly coloured, so they're easy to see.” - Mckenzie, Year 9
Student Engagement and Enjoyment
“Students enjoy the Personality and Interests quizzes in particular, because they have really set structured questions for them to answer and they always have a lot of enjoyment in the lesson. But then also the most important thing I would say is it leads to a Careers library search, so they can then go on to the Careers library and it can give them a really tailored result of careers that match their answers."
“The part of the platform that kept me hands on the most was the quizzes. You don't have to really scroll down a lot like other sites. The quiz that I enjoyed the most was the Work environments quiz. It taught me a lot about how well I would work with certain people. It also taught me a lot about my confidence levels and my ability to work in a massive group.” - Mckenzie, Year 9
“On the platform the quiz that I love the most is the Personality quiz, because it shows you what personality you have and how it links to other jobs you are going to do in the future.” - Noumane, Year 9
The Application Tools
“For me as a careers leader in sending off applications to colleges, I'm able to collate Personal Statements, learning tutor references, and update predicted grades for our students so that each college for each application has a personalised and ready-to-go application pack, so that immediately the colleges aren't having to ask us for information."
"We also use the management tools to help Year 11. We monitor their Personal Statements through this tool and we can see where they're up to. And we can then direct staff who are working with those students to help them to complete this."
“We have so much respect for the Unifrog platform. It's easy to use as a platform. The people we've dealt with are responsive, supportive, willing to help us in any way that we need, and work with us to develop the platform so that it works in the best possible way for our students. We really love it."
“I would definitely recommend Unifrog to other schools. It is an amazing resource to have. We have found it so useful here at Stretford High School. It supports my teaching, it supports the students. It gives us ideas. It keeps me feeling fresh and current with what is going on in the careers world and beyond."
