In September, the Careers Department and Year 11 Tutor Team took the year group to the annual careers event at Blackburn Cathedral, to introduce them to several local employers, universities and groups offering apprenticeships.

Pupils spent the morning talking to exhibitors and attending a number of employment-specific seminars.

The event, which Year 11 pupils attend each year, allows them to collect a great deal of information about possible career routes and prompts them to start thinking about options after Year 11.
