Drop Down Day

During a Careers focused drop down day, Year 11 took part in two workshops going over essential skills necessary to help them find a suitable post 16 pathway.For half of the day pupils took part in a session delivered by Rev Bannon and Miss Quigley, looking at destination routes that are available, open days and evenings, application forms, Post-16 routes and any key hints or tips for success.For the other half of the day, Year 11 explored and participated in a workshop consisting of CV Writing, Interview Skills and a skills analysis of themselves, delivered by Barclays Bank representative Efe Ezekiel.

Pupils showed great integrity and resilience and grew with confidence throughout the day, with the end result being pupils inspired to be more aspirational and better informed of their choices post 16.
