On Thursday 15th November, Mr Taylor and Miss Purvis accompanied a group of Year 11 pupils who have shown an interest in Apprenticeships to the National Skills show at the NEC, Birmingham.

Whilst it was a considerable minibus drive there and back, it was an excellent event with a huge number of exhibitors covering an extremely wide range of careers.

The pupils had the opportunity to talk to the representatives and to try out many of the activities on offer, from mechanics to floral arranging, and even having a go at bricklaying!

The day was an extremely informative and worthwhile experience, which the group will have gained a huge amount of knowledge from.
