Between 31 Oct -11 Nov, we held our Year 12 ‘Careers Fortnight’. The aim of this fortnight was to provide Year 12 students with resources and information to help them to make a better informed choice about what they might wish to do post 18, whether it be university, an apprenticeship scheme, a gap year or employment.

Activities included a trip to Lancaster University, where students attended a talk about how to choose a university, tour of the university campus and a sample workshop or lecture. We were also delighted to welcome a number of visitors into school, who kindly volunteered their time to offer practice 1:1 interviews for each student in Year 12.

Thank you to all of those who were involved in making this such a success.
