More than 25 companies, training providers and colleges turned up to show just what an apprenticeship can offer.

They descended on the school in Oaks Lane, Newbury Park to tell the Year 9 to 13 students how an apprenticeship could benefit them.

Steve Wilks, headteacher said: “I was delighted with the success of our first Apprenticeship Fair.

“We had an excellent response from providers and the students were very enthusiastic about it.

“It is certainly something we would wish to repeat.”

The school, which holds the Investors in Careers Award, said it was always looking for ways to ensure its students get into the best career possible for them.

Companies which attended the day long fair included Crossrail, Siemens and Morrisons.

The day was so successful that she school is going to hold a medical fair next month.
