On Monday 9th January, five of Hele’s School’s alumni community helped to deliver an assembly to Year 12 students on planning their future. With a range of personal experiences to call on, such as under-graduate and graduate study, vocational pathways and employment, the five guests were well-placed to help guide the current generation of Post 16 learners. The alumni gave some excellent advice, which included encouraging students to put their own ambitions and desires first and to make the most of their time in the sixth form. Robert Farmer, Post 16 Pastoral Leader, said: “We are hugely grateful that our former students have volunteered to give up their time to help our current sixth formers. I know the Year 12’s found this morning’s session really useful in helping to plan their futures and they have a much clearer idea about the pathways open to them.”
