Students from Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester recently took part in an Aspirations Day.
The pupils in Year 11 had the opportunity to reflect on their future path once they leave Saint Paul’s during the school’s recent Aspiration Day. They were able to gain valuable help and tips from ex-pupils, colleges and employers in a series of workshops.
Ms Hitchen, Careers lead, who organised the event, said: “The day was a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn some extremely valuable information and raise their aspirations.”
Mr Alex Hren, Head Teacher at Saint Paul’s, explained: “Our students found this to be a very valuable day where they were able to discuss their future paths with ex-pupils, college students and with employers. Students were able to broaden their horizons and aspirations and returned to school next day extremely motivated to work hard and do well.”
Mr Hren added “We are very grateful to those employers, colleges, ex-pupils and other organisations who are kind enough to offer their time to provide our students with the opportunity to make a more informed choice about what career route is best for them.”
