Year 9

In year 9 our pupils concentrate on developing their Enterprise Skills.

Enterprise Day will take place this year on Friday 3rd November and will be the National Enterprise Challenge where year 9's will compete for the chance to travel to Telford to present a business idea to a panel of nationally recognised business leaders.

Pupils should be starting to think in more detail about their options Post-16 and should visit our Careers Convention or any websites listed to find more information.

Year 9 pupils will continue to use U-Explore to work on their Employability Skills and to discover what local employers are looking for in their employees. All Year 9 pupils will have the chance to participate in Work Discovery Week and in targetted speaker talks and visits to local businesses such as Tyne Tees and Software City. A selected group of Year 9 pupils will also complete the Nissan Industrial Cadetship designed to promote careers in Engineering.
