Pupils from Turves Green Girls’ School got a taste of college life on Thursday 2 October by spending a day at Cadbury Sixth Form College.
The visit was organised to help pupils start thinking about careers and their plans for after school.
Over 100 Year 8 pupils visited the specialist sixth form college to undertake a range of activities including a careers quiz which explored the skills required for different jobs.
The pupils got to meet former Turves Green Girls’ School pupils who are now students at the college and heard about the differences between school and college as well as the advantages of studying A Levels. The pupils were also treated to musical performances from A Level Drama and BTEC Performing Arts students. The day ended with a fashion show in which Cadbury College students modelled garments created by students studying A Level Textiles.
