Tracey talks with Year 9
Tracey Poole has returned to school each year for the last three years as part our Come Back and Inspire talks, and then for Science week. This year she spent the morning talking to year 9 students about her career  as a Transport Planner at Atkins. Her exciting project on autonomous cars FLOURISH concludes this May, she was able to update the students on its findings. Tracey had lunch with Mr Davis and the Maths team in Take 5, followed by another talk with a group of students (year 7 and 10) who wanted learn more about her career. 

Tracey was part of the team that produced the Time Textile (450th school anniversary), and we paid a visit to it in the Library to view it once more. We are so grateful for her taking the time to come back to school, it is a fantastic chance for our students to understand different careers.
