On Wednesday 22nd January Prestatyn High School hosted an Education/Careers fair


This highly successful event ran at Prestatyn High School in partnership with Careers Wales and Glyndwr University.

With over a dozen stands including:- Student Finance, VFX/Animation, Criminology, Youth & Community, Education, Forensics, Media, Psychology, Vet Nursing and Computing

pupils were given a unique insight and the opportunity to find out more about the subjects and related job sector.


A Year 11 pupil said: “I was surprised at the range of courses available, everything from Criminology to Veterinary Nursing.”


Tutors from various subject areas were on hand to to provide answers to the many questions pupils had, to alleviate fears and to make them aware of the wide range of courses available.

As well as providing information on courses a wide range of topics such as the application process, tuition fees, student loans, budgeting, career opportunities were also presented by Student Finance and Career Wales.


One Year 7 pupil said: “I love rollercoasters and I had no idea that I could design ride simulators at college.”


The event at Prestatyn High school was enjoyed by all year groups and staff. With the event being so successful, a larger venue is planned for next year.
