Last week, Mrs Powney took 12 Year 10 students to Askham Bryan College for a taster day. All the students have a big interest in animals and are considering working with animals as a post 16 option.
They had a tour around the wildlife park and saw wallabies, skunks and marmosets amongst other animals. They also looked around the aviary and the reptile area.
Students had the opportunity to handle a tortoise and also to spend time with sugar gliders! They were also lucky enough to be allowed into the enclosure with the raccoon dogs, who proceeded to try to untie everyone’s shoelaces!
Students were given information on the courses and qualifications offered at the college, as well as about what career areas the qualifications could lead on to.
The students were all impeccably behaved and were an absolute credit to the school. Well done!
