Careers Fair

Our Careers Fair is designed to give students in Years 11-13 an opportunity to learn about career options and explore the realities of working in different industries. We also hope to challenge them both to think widely about how their interests and skills might lead on to a career and to reflect on their preconceived ideas about the labour market and how the world of work is changing.
The evening will begin at 5.45pm with an address from the High Master and Adrian Bull MBE, External Relations Director at the National Nuclear Laboratory (OM 1973-80), before the opportunity to attend some career specific talks and to ask questions of industry professionals.
If you would like to attend the talks on Engineering, Law, Business and/or Finance you must also book these tickets separately, in addition to the General Admission ticket.
Please note there will be presentations focusing on other sector areas but separate tickets are not required for these.

Parents are encouraged to attend with their sons but tickets will be strictly limited to a maximum of two per student.
