Barnwood Park School's Careers Fayre was held on Friday 19th November. Years 10 & 11 students spent the afternoon interacting with local employers, apprenticeship providers, 6th forms and colleges, the hall was buzzing with their excitement at talking to the contributors.
It was lovely to see ex pupils promoting their post 16 choices notably Keira Dobbs, Annabelle Faulkner, Weronika Stoop, Aminata Jah and Meghan Dix now respectfully studying for A levels or Degrees at Crypt, Ribston, St. Peters, Cirencester College and the University of Gloucestershire.
