On Friday 10th January 2020, pupils in year 11 had the opportunity to take some time away from their GCSE studies and consider their options for when they leave school. We were delighted to welcome representatives from local colleges, training providers and organisations. Representatives from Runshaw College and Cardinal Newman College came in to talk to pupils about applying for college and assisted with completion of their online college applications. Representatives from Preston’s College came in to talk about sixth form applications and apprenticeships. We were also joined by representatives from Training 2000 and the NHS, they were able to give pupils an insight into the range of apprenticeships on offer.

"Feedback from the year 11 students was appreciative and positive, with students applying for the courses they wished to pursue when they leave in the summer," said Mr Gray, Head of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance. "The day achieved its aim."

Pupils also had the opportunity to learn some strategies on how to cope with exam stress. Many thanks to everyone who came into school to support our pupils in applying for post-16 options, the advice they received was invaluable.
