Pointing Pupils In Right Direction

Careers and options after school proved popular topics at a successful Post-16 evening organised by Healing School.

Businesses and colleges attended the event at the Low Road, Healing, school to give guidance and advice to pupils, accompanied by parents.

Principal Mark Knapton said the evening had been well received by everybody.

"We had excellent feedback from those who had come to advise our pupils and we're grateful to them for their time and making the event such a success," he said.

"It gave our pupils plenty to think about. Some are quite fixed on what they want to do in the future, others aren't so sure. For both groups, it was an important opportunity to explore their various options."

Those attending included Novartis, Phillips 66, the Army, the RAF, BOC, Franklin College, Grimsby Institute and the University of Hull.

The evening came after data revealed 99.4% of Healing School's Year 11 leavers this year were in education or employment.

Mr Knapton said: "This is encouraging news. It's further evidence we're developing well rounded individuals that are ready for work or continuing their education.

"Our Post 16 careers evening plays an important part in ensuring our leavers are choosing the right option."
