Mock Results Day
Students were given a taster of how one of the most important days of their lives is likely to play out.
Year 11 youngsters at The Co-opperative Academy took part in a dry run of exam results day. The event was aimed at providing career and progression advice, as well as motivating and inspiring pupils for the future.
University and college staff also attended to hold mock interviews.
Assistant Vice-Principal Mrs Crowther-Green said: "It was about getting students to think about the future. We were overwhelmed by the responses of businesses and companies.The students thoroughly enjoyed it and the whole day was a huge success. It's an event we will be repeating on an annual basis."
The Academy would like to thank the many companies and professionals that volunteered their time and expertise on the day.
Particular thanks to our inspirational speakers on the day
