Aspiration Raising

As part of our aim to raise student aspirations we have invited specialist speakers in to talk about future options and next steps.

This year we have had visits from:

Work Placement

All Y12 students will have the opportunity to take part in a week of work experience. A fantastic opportunity to enable them to try out the sector they may be interested in pursuing a career in or to help decide or rule in or out potential choices.

Take Over Day

2019 saw Take-Over Day continue to grow. A day where students get to have their say and support the staff in running the school. 84 student applications and lots of excitement and enthuisiasm about the application process and being part of the day. Some fantastic feedback from staff and students and as part of this day we we're able to complete a live streamed broadcast from the World Skills Show in Birmingham where they explained the following industries: Engineering, Business, Media, Retail and Emergency Services.
