It was pleasing to see how packed out the school assembly hall was on Tuesday night for this year's careers fair.
All children from Years 9 -13 were welcome to attend to talk to people about a variety of interesting careers including in architecture, law and aeronautical design. Many parents also attended and gave up their time to talk about their own careers.
"It was a fabulous evening and I've been told that the girls at Augusta House were buzzing about the event afterwards," said head of Sixth Form Jennifer Appleton, who organised the careers evening.
"I've heard one Year 10 pupil who wants to be an engineer has managed to get herself some work experience with Airbus which is fantastic to hear," continued Mrs Appleton.
She added: "As I am sure we are all aware, support and interest at this crucial time in a child's life is essential when helping them to navigate their way through career choices, and their next steps after leaving school."
Students had the opportunity to talk to experts in the following fields:
Aeronautical Design and Manufacture, Armed Services, Property Development, Civil Engineering, Business Management, Occupational Health, Fire & Rescue Services, Ceramics Design, Teaching, Interior design, and Architecture and Conference & Events Management. There was also a information desk to offer CV Help and advice with Interview Techniques.
