Pupils have been benefitting from opportunities provided by the Careers Department

Trip to Norwich Research Park

Five current Year 12 pupils, Olga B, Iciar C-B, Rose T, Freddie B and Pearl Y, all with a strong interest in Science, Medicine, Technology and Research, attended ‘Enterprise Tuesday’ at the John Innes Conference Centre. They heard talks from the Earlham Institute, Quadram Institute, John Innes Centre  and UEA highlighting the technology platforms developed at Norwich Research Park, revealing their origin, and presenting case studies on their applications and discoveries.

Contemporary Art Lecture

We welcomed Celia from Art History Abroad to talk to all of Year 12. 

Celia gave a superb talk, giving a new perspective on contemporary art and making it accessible to all whilst showcasing the variety of careers within the creative sector such as Marketing, Finance, Event Management and Business.

We look forward to welcoming them back to Gresham’s for further insight and talks. 

Law Insight Day

Thank you to OG Katy Warren (k 2001 – 07) for flagging the opportunity of The Leap into Law Insight Day at global law firm Watson Farley & Williams to our Sixth Form pupils interested in a future Law career.

Eva O’D was successful in her application and enjoyed a day with Watson Farley & Williams hearing from trainee lawyers, taking part in workshops and learning the different routes into law.


Fritz S and his family had requested for Fritz to have some work experience before his return to Germany. Thank you to local employers Bakers and Larners, Holt, for facilitating this request and for sending the following superb feedback:

“I would just like to say what a star Fritz has been. Every staff member that has worked with Fritz over the course of his work experience has commented on what a lovely young man he is. He was well mannered, polite, friendly and very engaging. We have a very diverse staff demographic and Fritz was able to connect with everyone with ease. While working on the shop floor Fritz had no hesitation in talking to customers and offering assistance. Again, this showed great maturity and a willingness to get stuck in a try something new. He threw himself into all tasks and it really felt like he wanted to get as much out of the experience as he possibly could.”


Thank you so much to OG Hattie Reynolds (c & Q 2023 – 16) who came back to talk to current Sixth Form pupils Lucy O, Albert W and Rory R about her experience of USA study and athletics training. It was a super helpful, lively and informative chat. Thank you Hattie and congratulations for the return in August for your second year of USA study at the prestigious Duke University, North Carolina.
