Just before the half term, we held our first ever Aspirations Week – and what a week it was! We had visitors from many different walks of life who came into school to talk to pupils about a wide range of different career options. They brought with them fun activities which helped pupils to understand their roles in the world of work. Pupils also visited sites such as the Roman Fort at Piercebridge, The Mayors Parlour and The Head of Steam. A big THANK YOU to all who came to support – governors, parents, grandparents, ex pupils and our own staff: Mr Waistell had a previous career as a draughtsperson, Mr Banks has played football at Wembley and Mr Bowes is the Northern Echo’s Apprentice of the Year. As you can see from the photographs, everyone really enjoyed the week and it was lovely to see pupils dressed up on the Friday as the person they would like to be in the future. Well done to Mrs Davison who put the whole thing together for us.
