As you may know our Year 8 pupils are currently deciding which options they will be choosing to study for the next three years. To assist them Springfield ran a 'Future Options Day' yesterday with the help of EBP South Limited. Local business volunteers kindly gave up their time and showcased their businesses to small groups of pupils using a speed dating style rotation. Pupils were fully engaged in this informative day and really had time to reflect on what they would like to do once they leave Springfield. Special thanks to EBP South Limited for organising the day and to the following companies who participated: BAE Systems Maritime Services, Blake Morgan, Biscoes, CIPS, HRMC, Job Centre Plus, Leonardo, Vodaphone, PETA, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, QinetiQ, Rowans Hospice and Rowans Hospice Shop, Royal Navy, UTC, Vector Aerospace, Fareham College, CEMAST, South Downs College, Havant College, Highbury College, Manpower UK Ltd.
The Year 8 pupils are also participating in option taster sessions this week and next week to give them a more indepth idea of what each subject entails. There is also a parent/carer options evening on Monday, 8th May 2017.
