Year 6 are inspired!

Year 6 pupils with their inspiring visitors

Year 6 were fortunate enough to host some very inspirational visitors on Friday, when they were challenged to guess the careers of three guests to the Academy as part of the Inspiring the Future programme, which aims to give young people first-hand career insights.  David from the IT and Banking industry, Jodie, a Project Manager and Squadron Leader Ally, a trainer for helicopter pilots from RAF Shawbury were all quizzed by Year 6 pupils and talked about what they did and how they had got into their choisen professions.  As our oldest pupils prepare to move on to secondary school, broadening their horizons with days like these are invaluable.  Many thanks to our volunteers for coming in.
