    The 2016 Careers Expo will be taking place at the Horncastle Arena from Thursday 12 May to Saturday 14 May.


    As part of our Careers programme we will provide the opportunity for all Year 12 students to attend on Thursday 22 May between 1pm and 2.30pm, with students being transported by bus to and from the Expo venue.  The students will be back at school by 3 pm. 

    This is an excellent chance for students to talk face to face with a wide range of employers, industries, government departments, and training providers who will provide employment and career information.  We hope that, as in past years, it will be very well supported.

    This is a community event and admission is free to all at any of the sessions. 

    The session times are:

    Thursday 12 May     9am - 3pm & 5 - 7pm
