College trip on PSHE day

Students have been invited to visit a nearby college to think about GCSEs and their future careers.

This Friday will be the first PSHE day of this academic year and members of Year 8 will be using it to go to Camborne College.

Students will walk to the Opie Building Lecture theatre ready to take part in a welcome talk at 9am. Here they will learn about the Cornwall College Group, further education and GCSE options. There will also be a coach to the Duchy Rosewarne site for those interested in working with animals.

Those on either site will be given tours and spoke to about college life. They will return to Pool Academy by 1pm.

Mr Durant, from Pool Academy, said: “Students will be lectured on what employers and colleges will expect from students’ application forms.

“The college are working with us to make sure that all students at Pool have the best career plans set in place for the future.”
