Schoolchildren in Arlesey enjoyed dressing up last week as part of Gothic Mede Academy’s annual Ambitions Day.
The event included visits from a firefighter, photographer, veterinary nurse, health and safety officer, archaeologist and a location planner for Sainsbury’s.
The students were able to come into school dressed up for the career they hoped to pursue in the future, enjoyed listening to each of the visitors explain their jobs.
Year 5 teacher Laura Fye said: “Ambitions Day has been a great opportunity for the children to start thinking about what they would like to do when they are older and how they can achieve their ambitions.
“Our aim was to inspire the children and encourage them to be ambitious. We hope the day has left them excited about what their future could hold!”
