On Friday 1st July Springwell held its first careers morning as part of our PSHE topic on careers and the world of work. Pupils from years 7, 8, 9 &10 from school and some pupils from our Alternative Academies talked to further education providers to discuss their options after leaving year eleven. A massive thank you to the further education providers who came: ITS, Barnsley College, Fleets, YH – Military Prep Course, TIAG, Barnsley Football Club, Police, Apire IGEN and DVC.
