We were fortunate to have Professor Phippen from Plymouth university visit and spend 2 hours providing a lecture and tutorial on Technology.  He discussed the use of social media, such as Facebook and Twitter and how they are used as business tools.  He also discussed the impacts of globalisation on emerging markets to my our A Level Business Studies class.  This was great preparation for their final exam and also an opportunity to discuss studying Business at Higher Education level.

Year 12 and 13 Business students went to Bristol Cribbs Causeway where they attended a Revision Seminar provided by tutor2u.  There was guidance on exam skills and contemporary business scenarios were analysed. These included a strategic review of a theme park, a pet food business and a popcorn company.

As part of Plymouth University‚Äôs Widening Participation Programme to encourage students who would not usually consider Higher Education, an experience of what university has to offer was provided at a day to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The students in attendance were from Year 12 and 13. 

Students from A level Art and Design and Business Studies attended a guest lecture from Tara Ashe, designer and owner of Block Design, at Plymouth University on 12th December 2013. 

In December Sixth Form students were taken to Dairy Crest, Davidstow. The students received advice and guidance on careers in the food industry ranging from Marketing, Engineering and Food Technology. After the lecture we had a tour of the facilities.
