Dear Parents and Carers

As we know, the world of work is changing at a rapid pace and employers are frequently heard bemoaning the lack of employability skills in young people applying for jobs.

On Monday, our Year 7s took part in an enterprise event called the Cupcake Challenge, where they were asked to come up with an idea for a new range of cupcakes and packaging. They worked together in teams, discussed and refined their ideas, decided how to promote their brand and presented the final product to the judges. (more…)

These include striking up a conversation with someone who is on their own, giving a parent/carer a hug and saying thank you to a member of staff.

Top Secret Code Breaking Mission
