Inspiring Girls Event

Inspiring Girls Event

Last week a small group of our female Year 10 students attended an ‘Inspiring Girls Day’ at The Cliff training ground in Broughton.

The trip was organised as part of our partnership with Manchester United Foundation and its’ aim to increase female empowerment and employability aspirations.

During the morning our students enjoyed an inspiring and motivational talk from Polar Preet, a British Army Medical Officer and physiotherapist. Preet had recently completed an astounding 40 day hiking expedition, becoming the first woman of colour to complete a solo expedition in Antarctica.

The girls then swiftly moved on to carry out some physical activities facilitated by the British Army. These included; working as a team to complete a tyre stack challenge, arranging them in the correct order and also working in smaller groups to construct a Go Kart using kit provided by the Army.

Our day was rounded off by presentations from The Manchester College who spoke with our students about the many varied opportunities on offer in college and the typical education pathways that lead to employment.
