Business in The Community

The school successfully secured funding from the Careers and Enterprise Company to run a workshop called Careers Lab through Business in the Community. A group of Year 10 and Year 11 students participated in this project. Careers Lab is a Business in the Community initiative which aims to bridge the gap between schools and industry by getting more businesses into the classroom to deliver inspiring careers lessons side-by-side with teachers, helping young people to think more widely about their working life. 

“It was a pleasure to attend and I really felt the pupils engaged fantastically and I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable sessions I’ve had”
