Transition Year 2022-23

Last year there were lots of opportunities offered to our students to help them develop and mature into young adults, and to guide them towards their future career paths.

With visitors in, trips out and work experience, teachers continued to be innovative and creative, endeavouring to make this a great year for our students.
