Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Women in Manufacturing Event

Posted: 11th September 2018 in General News

Women into Manufacturing & Engineering  (WiME) event - Saturday 6th October - Hull Guildhall

 

This is a first come, first served basis, and each session starts every half hour. It is important you get booked on early as places are filling fast!

These events build on the events held in Hull and North Lincs, and will see girls from primary schools, secondary schools and colleges meet with an array of businesses from across the Humber with a focus on Engineering and Manufacturing.

These types of roles are predominantly applied for by males, and as a country we need to buck that trend as the UK is 28th out of 28 EU countries for females in the sector. Less than 10% of all staff in the sector are female, and this is one of the sectors with the biggest skills gap.

There will be plenty of have-a-go activity and a competition to engage in Science and Maths fields, and the businesses attending are well versed in speaking with females of all ages and abilities.

There is no specific age group to target, but feedback from previous events tells us year 5 to year 9 girls got the most benefit. Girls who are studying for science related roles in year 10-13 also benefit enormously by meeting with the companies they hope to work for to get an understanding of the pathway and application processes.
