Update - May 2018

For the past 3 years, Priesthorpe has had a long-term partnership with Lloyds Bank. We have had strong links with a team of staff from the Halifax Mortgage division. The Halifax team have supported our students on a number of development days in school and carried out a variety of activities around Money and Employability. These have included:

* Designing and building a roller coaster using straws, toilet roll holders and a marble.

* Financial Literacy workshop – including how to plan a budget.

* Business Challenge - students designed a bank account that had to appeal to young people.

Our partnership through Business in the Community ends this year. We are hoping to continue to work with the Halifax team outside of our partnership via Business Class.

Research shows that young people who have four or more meaningful encounters with employers while at school are 85% less likely to be unemployed in the future and can expect to earn more than students who had no such meetings. At Priesthorpe, we pride ourselves in providing the best opportunities for our student’s future and are continuing to work with a wide range of employers who support our students during Personal Development Days and at our annual Careers Fair.
