Careers Lunches 2015-2016

Share your Career Experiences over an Informal Lunch with Students at WBS Some of you will be aware that the OWBA is beginning to work more closely with the school on their Higher Education programme; this has already resulted in some old boys and girls coming into school to give presentations to the Year 12s. Matt Brimson, Head of Higher Education, has invited OWBA members  to come back to the school to talk to students about their careers and experiences over lunch They will be informal, and an opportunity for students to ask questions rather than listening to a presentation.
