Year 11/13 Mock Interviews
This year the mock interviews have been another successful event with numerous Employers such as Cummins Turbo Technologies, Verbatim Asset Management, and Kirklees Apprenticeships. We also had representatives from the NHS, Social Mobility Foundation, Army and the Royal Navy. This year we had the Year 13 students involved as most students who apply to higher education courses will need an interview, therefore we had admission tutors from Higher Education/colleges attending. The feedback we received was very positive they were all impressed with our students interaction, their quality of CV’s and personal statements were of a high standard.
Ofsted October 2013:
“They benefit from a broad programme of very well-attended extra-curricular activities, including sports, cultural and subject-related clubs. Trips and visits to places of interest enrich students’ experiences.
Students are exceedingly well prepared for the next stage of their education, employment or training.
The governing body works very effectively in partnership with school leaders to plan for the future development of the academy. This has allowed the academy to improve swiftly.*
