The careers day, which was held at Sir John Lawes School on Wednesday, March 21, allowed Year 10 and Year 12 pupils to explore the range of opportunities available to them post A-Level.

Year 12 pupils were joined by pupils from Samuel Ryder and Bushey Academy to attend talks delivered by industry professionals and year 10 pupils attended a careers fair, with more than 70 organisations filling the sports hall and offering information on opportunities within their own companies.

Sixth form manager Julie Honour-Jones said: “Our students had spent considerable time researching the companies attending and this was really appreciated by the employers, many of whom commended our students for their knowledge, the quality of questions they asked and the professional way in which they conducted themselves.”
