Dressing down and wearing red on Friday 11th October

We will be dressing down and wearing red on Friday 11th October to celebrate Show Racism the Red Card and to coincide with the end of term.

Donations will be collected at Tutor Time by S6 and will be sent to aid those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. This charity was suggested by a member of our S6 Equalities Group.

My World of Work

Forrester are pleased to introduce our 2019-2020 My World of Work Ambassador team. They are excited to support parents, students, and staff with utilising this fantastic resource to encourage learning for life and work. We would encourage all students to engage with the website, https://www.myworldofwork.co.uk/ , and we would encourage parents to use https://www.mykidscareer.com/ – to help support these conversations and plans. The MyWow Ambassadors will be around during parent’s evenings and events throughout the year to help support all students.
