Business Breakfast

Last week the Academy hosted a Business Breakfast, where we invited local employers, the Academy Council and universities to visit the Academy to forge new links with local companies and the community. We started by taking our visitors on a tour of our wonderful Academy, to show them what we do best.

We had talks from Ms Thomas about Work Experience, Mrs Parsons about Careers guidance and also Miss Lay about Student Leadership and Engagement. Each of these led onto discussions about how our visitors could support our students in these areas of the Academy, and what opportunities they could provide them. Thanks also go to our Student Leadership team who supported this event by giving short speeches about how they felt that local businesses have had an impact on the Academy.
