Skills for Success is Success Again

More than 90 students from Year 12 have been taking part in the school's annual Skills for Success conference.

Students volunteer to sign up for the three-day programme which has been running for more than 10 years.

The Sixth Formers work in teams to complete a series of tasks, with help and advice from local business people. The final challenge for teams is to design and market a brand new product, for which they must produce a TV advertisement.

This year, students devised a variety of products, including body sprays, biscuits and confectionery.

Margaret Hawksworth, Director of Sixth Form, said: "Every year, students come up with some weird and wonderful ideas. The three days are a lot of fun but they also require students to spend hours working together with visiting business experts, developing their team working and communication skills, as well as their creativity.

"This whole experience is a great preparation for whatever students do next - whether they choose to enter the workplace or higher education - and everyone involved agrees it is hugely worthwhile."
