Year 8, Year 9, and select Year 10 and 11 students all listened to advice from Charlene Shaw, author of young adult fiction novel Fall in Lin’, Dhillon Bhardwaj, founder and owner of Ratchet Clothing (his T-shirts have been worn by Miley Cyrus and Rihanna) and Nathaniel Morrison - actor and judge on BBC One’s All Together Now.

The careers event gave students the chance to ask the panellists questions about their time at school and Laura Ennis, head of careers at the school, said: “It was exciting to see the students engage with real people about their journey through school and how it helped shape their chosen career paths.

“They had lots of questions and even got an impromptu performance from a West End star!”
