Students were given a taste of the future when they met
with national and local businesses for a special ‘Aspiration
Day’ .
The event helped showcase to students the exciting
opportunities on offer when they leave school, with
those attending taking part in a variety of activities and
workshops with representatives from the business sector,
as well as Russell Group universities.
Year 10 and 11 students from Sheffield Park and its fellow
United Learning schools, Sheffield Springs Academy and
Barnsley Academy, discussed future opportunities, both
in higher education and the world of work, with the
following organisations:
Commented Sheffield Park Academy’s Executive Principal Craig Dillon:
“This is the third year that we have run this event and thanks to the excellent
attendance and feedback, we intend to make it an annual fixture. It’s certainly
rewarding to see the students and
colleagues fromthebusiness andhigher

exploring the opportunities that are out
there.”
Added South Yorkshire’s High Sheriff,
Dr Julie MacDonald, who also attended
the event:
