Year 9 Travel to The Skills Show

Over 2 days on the 19 and 20 November Year 9 students had the opportunity to visit the Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham.  

This event is the largest Careers fair in the UK and hundreds of employers, colleges, universities and apprenticeship providers were represented.  

The students had the chance to explore different careers, participate in workshops, listen to talks by industry experts, consider alternative pathways and get some hands on experience.

With the need to make GCSE option choices in the coming months, the event gave Year 9 students the chance to really think about their future career aspirations and judging by the animated conversations that took place on the coach on the way home many of them collected some really useful information!

The students’ conduct was exemplary across both days and they were all a credit to the school.
