On Tuesday, 26th June 2018, Major Naveed Muhammad MBE from the Royal Signals came into school to talk with a group of pupils from Years 8, 9 and 10.

They had a ‘mess’ lunch in the Garstang Room with table cloths and napkins, everyone was on their best behaviour!

Mr Sutton, the catering manager, and his team cooked up a superb meal which the pupils served and cleared away afterwards.

Towards the end of the lunch the group were joined by Lt Col John Lighten MBE.  Major Naveed talked about the role of the Armed Forces in the modern world. He talked about his own career path, but also what it was like being in the Forces today.

The Major and the Colonel then spent time talking with some of our pupils who are considering the Armed Forces for a future career, they enjoyed answering the diverse range of questions posed to them.
