Creative Careers week

Our always innovative Expressive Arts Team embraced multiple virtual opportunities to showcase careers in the Arts

As part of Bury LCEP Creative Careers week students at Key Stage 3 got the opportunity to take part in presentations offered through this superb initiative.

Students attended sessions entitled “Businesses in the community” and “The arts” and spoke to a range of professionals within the arts including authors, creative artists, company directors, educators, artists and performers. Students were able to learn about a plethora of creative careers and given the freedom to explore further by asking these professionals challenging questions. 

Additonally, this year 7 students got the opportunity to participate in a live BBC webinar receiving a presentation from BBC professionals within Executives, apprenticeships and broadcast engineering. 

GCSE music students in both years 10 and 11 were given the opportunity to talk to a professional musician in the form of Colour Sgt M Holt of the Welsh Guards who gave a thoroughly informative talk about life as a working musician. 

What a fabulous array of experiences!
