World of Work Day

As part of our Inspiring Futures work, we were visited today by Mr Philp - one of our Governors - who spoke about the jobs and roles he has had in his life. Leaving school at 16, with only Carpentry O Level, Mr Philp joined the RAF as an aircraft mechanic in 1958. Throughout his time in the RAF, he never stopped learning and rose to the rank of Warrant Officer. The classes asked him if this was his dream job - he replied that he would have liked to be a County Cricketer but "I loved what I did". He left us with some excellent advice - he said, "Work out what you want to do and GO for it." Thank you Mr Philp.
