On Wednesday 25th September, Queensbury School held their annual Future Options evening. This careers event was well attended by exhibitors, parents and students. There were colleges, sixth forms, vocational training providers, independent specialist providers and specialist post-19 providers. Parents and students were able to find out more about the options open to them and what the individual providers had to offer. It was especially useful for students in Years 10 and 13 as they will make their provision choices at the end of this school year.
Any parents with students in Year 11 or 14 who still haven’t made their preference choices should contact Mr Mitchell at Queensbury for help.
If you missed the Future Options evening, there is still help and guidance available.
