This week, Hereford Cathedral School pupils in Year 10 gained a fantastic insight into their possible career options in a special event.

In a round-robin activity held in the Sixth Form Cafe, pupils had the chance to talk to professionals with a wide range of impressive credentials, to get an idea of their career paths and what they studied in order to get where they are today.

The professionals included:

Law – Katy Skerrett, Coroner

Retail – Bruce Jones, Managing Partner at Philip Morris

Medicine & Psychiatry – Dr Angharad Gray, Psychiatrist

Languages – Emma Maxted, UK Diplomatic Service/FCDO

Marketing – Laura Yates, Director of Marketing and Communications, Hereford Cathedral School

Property – Richard Binnersley, Joint Managing Director, Brightwells

Apprenticeships – Representatives from Riverside Training, who were on hand to talk to pupils about apprenticeship opportunities in various industries

Army careers advisors

Later, the students completed selected sessions on revision strategies, and then took part in a session on preparing for Sixth Form and beyond.

Many thanks to our guest speakers for taking time out to inspire our pupils!
