Careers Day

Students in Y11 recently had a hugely successful day working alongside professionals representing a wide range of employment sectors and post 16 training providers. All students experienced a mock interview with an employer and attended workshops plus sessions on applying for college using resources such as UCAS Progress.

‘Rotherham and North Notts Training’ offered students a workshop on apprenticeships and students and staff from Rotherham College ran a much appreciated session on ‘Stepping up to Success’ as students move on to college. Ambassadors from ‘HEPP’ gave the students an insight in to Higher Education.

It was a very busy but informative day for the students and helped set them on their way for progress after competing Year 11. Thank you to all the visitors who helped to make it ‘real’ for the students. We are grateful to them for sharing their knowledge and experience and inspiring students as they plan for the future.

Drumtastic

The next Drumtastic performance will take place in the Music Department at 4pm on Thursday 1st December.

Drumtastics are informal events where young musicians are given the opportunity to play in front of a small audience of family, friends and teachers. This helps pupils prepare for larger concerts in the Performance Hall as it gets them used to dealing with their nerves.
This Drumtastic event will showcase performances from musicians in Year 11 as they prepare for their final exam in February. They will be supported by the Rock and Soul Bands, and musicians in Y9 and 10.
If you would like to attend please contact Mrs Maud or Mrs Houlbrook in P5 – tickets are free!
