Thanks to Matt and Simon from Morrison’s logistics who spoke to students in Year 10 and Year 12 about how engineering and manufacturing aids large UK businesses and the skills & characteristics required of future employees! There are lots of opportunities for work placements, tours and future apprenticeships.
We hope you have enjoyed a relaxing two week break. A reminder that the summer term begins on Monday 23rd April for all students. Please ensure your son/daughter arrives by 08:30am – attendance is crucial, particularly with exams and vital lessons over the coming months.
Congratulations to all the winners in our end of term celebration assemblies. These are important milestones to share the success of students in their attendance, attainment and attitude to learning. Click here to see the pictures!
