Our annual careers speed networking event on Thursday 25 April 2019 was a huge success. During the morning, students from Year 8 to Year 13 had the opportunity to talk to visitors representing a broad range of career and education pathways. We are grateful to the many representatives who provided a wealth of information for our students. Feedback has been extremely positive. We hope that our visitors will consider supporting a similar event next year; watch this space for further information.
The next Careers Fair will be on Wednesday 5 February 2020. If you think you might be willing and able to support us with this event please click here for further information.
