Friday 14th February is a staff training day. However, several Year 11 & sixth form teachers have requested to teach key stage 4 & 5 lessons on that day to help students prepare for both GCSE's and 6th form up coming mocks on the 24th February. Attendance to these lessons is compulsory. Students should arrive 15 minutes before their lesson in their daily, professional attire. If students would like to remain on site during lunchtime, lunch will be provided free of charge. Students must sign in and out at reception.
APA Careers Fair 2019
This April we opened our doors and welcomed in a wide range of exhibitors for our careers fair, now in its second year of running. This was our largest event yet; we had a HUGE range of employers, universities, colleges, training and apprenticeship providers and industry professionals from areas such as Engineering/Built Environment, Business, Healthcare, Childcare, Creative, Finance, Law, Hospitality, Music, Theatre, Animation, Science & STEM, Armed and Community Services, Sports and Fitness, Fashion & Retail and Charity sectors.
Every student in the school from years 7 through to 13 had the opportunity to network with the various exhibitors and do some crucial fact finding. Having the opportunity to speak to people with different professions, backgrounds and educational pathways means that students can get an honest insight into the world of work and understand different ways in which to reach their career goals. On the day itself many of our students came away having secured work experience, or had build their contact network for the future, hopefully leading them on to great things... watch this space!
