Upper 5th: You're Hired!

U5 CV Competition winners 2019

Congratulations to the Upper 5th pupils who were successful in this year's HE & Careers yearly CV and Cover Letter competition, which challenges pupils to write a CV and cover letter as an application for one of six work opportunities:

  • GlaxoSmithKline – Work experience
  • Gordonstoun International Summer School – Student leader
  • Sky News – Journalism Apprenticeship
  • Close Brothers – Merchant Banking School Leaver Scheme
  • Incisive Media – Digital Design Apprenticeship
  • Pupil’s own choice

Pupils had one week to submit their applications.  All of the ‘jobs’ were aimed at 17-18 year old pupils and specified suitable ‘skills’ (rather than academic ability).  We were very impressed by the quality and, once again, it was tough task selecting the winners. The winners listed below were announced in assembly and on this occasion received a certificate and chocolates, rather than a job!
