Army roadshow

Today, we welcomed the British Army for an informal session at our school. Sgt Argent, the school's Army Liaison Officer, spent break time in the Year 10 playground, engaging with students about the various pathways available to them after Year 11.

The session aimed to highlight the numerous technical and trade-based career options that students can pursue. Sgt Argent also discussed the Army's Foundation College at Harrogate, presenting it as an alternative to studying A Levels or attending college.

He explained, "The Army Foundation College is the only Junior Entry Basic Training establishment in the British Army. The College plays a vital role in providing basic military training and developing future leadership. It offers a mix of military training, personal development, and education for under-19s, equipping them with skills to succeed in the Armed Forces and in their lives beyond the military."
