Sixth Form Careers and Financial Awareness Week

The Sixth Form have had a two-week focus on life after school – first they took part in a Financial Awareness week, where the students learnt about earning, spending, saving and, of course, debt. They also focused on the emotional aspect of money. This was followed by Careers Week, resulting in a guest talk from Tony Preston of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as well as talks from our own Mark McSweeney (software development), Eve Blackwood (working at the BBC) and Kathryn Sumner (Working in the TV, film and stage industries). It is fair to say that the students were inspired and enlightened by the various challenges and rewards of life after education.
