Year 8 – The Skills Show, NEC, Birmingham
21st November 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm£8.00
As part of our extensive enrichment programme, a visit to The Skills Show has been arranged for Year 8 pupils. All pupils will have the opportunity to attend the event being held at the NEC on Thursday 21st November 2019.
The Skills Show is the one-stop-shop for careers inspiration, bringing jobs and skills to life in a highly interactive environment. As the UK’s largest skills and careers event, there’s something to suit all interests, and you can try out a huge range of workplace skills across large variety of industries.
We will be leaving school at 9.30 am and returning to school for approximately 3.00 pm (traffic permitting). Pupils should arrive at school normal time and in full school uniform, they will need to bring a packed lunch and drinks for the day (not glass bottles or cans). Mobile phones will be collected at the start of the day and returned as normal at the end of school. Any mobile phones/devices found with your child during the trip will be confiscated and an adult will need to collect them.
Should your child need medication they should have this on them i.e. inhalers.
Please note that whilst the entry for the Skills show is free, there is an £8.00 charge for the cost of transport, if you have not made payment then this means that we do not have parental consent from you to take your child. Please contact the finance department if there is an issue with payment.
This can be paid online via Parentpay. This is a voluntary contribution, however if enough funding is not received this visit will not be able to take place.
Please make payment of £8.00 by Friday 8th November 2019.
