Senior pupils at Oakhill are taking part in National Careers Week this week with a number of presentations and activities. Our school focus for the week is key transferable skills. This morning, ex-pupil Jess Chatburn, came in to talk to us about her apprenticeship degree at Airbus. Jess is in her second year, based in Bristol. She told us about the programme and what important skills she gained from Oakhill and extracurricular activities. Leadership, teamwork and problem solving skills featured from Duke of Edinburgh and communication from her role as Head girl. It was a delight to see Jess and how much she is enjoying her apprenticeship.

This afternoon in PSHE, Year 7 completed activities to promote and use creative thinking. Adopting the personality of a celebrity they had to come up with solutions to help a struggling cafe.

A great start to the week.
