It's World of Work Week!

We have been busy welcoming visitors to school from a wide variety of careers and businesses to talk to and inspire our students. Some have been part of our assemblies and others are going into the classrooms.

On Tuesday, we were especially pleased to welcome Etienne Stott, 2012 Canoe Slalom Olympic Champion. Etienne spoke to our Y10s in assembly about 3 key areas he has learnt from – understanding when things go wrong and then learning about performing under pressure, accessing support and making a plan, and making use of your opportunities and always intending to do your best!

Etienne was accompanied by Lauren, from Aldi Uk, who sponser Team GB and she shared a great presentation about apprenticeships at Aldi and included tips and skills for anyone seeking an apprenticeship.

Meeting with a small group of the students afterwards, Etienne generously passed round his Gold Medal and answered a range of questions #WorldOfWorkWeek
