26th November 2019 — Over 1,000 GCSE and A level students from across the region recently enjoyed the Bolton School Careers and Higher Education Fair. Over forty employers and thirty plus HE institutions from Dundee to Falmouth as well as international universities had stands at the popular event. With seminars on improving your employability, applying to dental school, routes to a legal career, student finance, studying abroad, Oxbridge application, applying to medical school and apprenticeship opportunities, the evening once again proved a must-attend event for Year 9-13 students and their parents.

The event has been running for over 20 years and is one of the largest of its kind in the North-West - there were delegates from a wide range of businesses, some offering apprenticeships, representing careers in law, medicine, journalism, accountancy, engineering, construction, architecture and much more. Amongst the HE providers were the University of Manchester, the University of Sheffield, the University of Leeds, Durham University, Bath University, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Liverpool, the University of Law, the University of York, the University of Birmingham, UCLAN and the LSE as well as more local institutions.

The Great Halls of both Divisions and the shared Riley Sixth Form Centre were used for the event and Senior Teachers and Y12 ‘ambassadors’ greeted exhibitors, helping them with parking, registering and setting up; they also welcomed and helped attendees.
