The first week back after half term kicked off to a great start as Year 9 spent a very productive two days improving their ‘Essential Skills’. Activities included projects aimed at developing business skills, improving students’ financial management, presentation design, research skills, digital capability and persuasive writing. Students worked extremely well independently and in teams and thoroughly enjoyed the experience too! Many thanks to Mr Gareth Lloyd and the Year 9 Essential Skills team for providing such a valuable and enjoyable experience. TV’s ’The Apprentice’ finalists had better look out!
