During the day, students have the opportunity to attend a number of different sessions across a range of topics such as education, public services, cookery and law. It’s a great way for them to focus on what they may look to do in future and identify the subjects they will need to study at GCSE.

A personal statement is essentially a marketing pitch for yourself so it needs to convey a positive image, be well-composed and persuasive. Preparing something similar? Here’s my recommended structure and some pointers on content to get you started:

Supporting Westleigh’s next generation

Paul supporting Westleigh for mock interviews

CRE8 was really happy to help out at our client Westleigh High School’s recent Y11 mock interview day.
