Morrisby 2015

 “Discover your hidden talents and choose fulfilling A levels, degree courses and careers”

Profile Image

This year we are again offering students in year 11 and 12 the opportunity to take the suite of Morrisby Psychometric Assessments in preparation for making A level, degree and career choices. The Morrisby Profile is enhanced careers guidance. Letters and application forms have been emailed home with the details. I would encourage you to think about this opportunity, the report and feedback will support your planing, offer fresh and original ideas or indeed challenge you current thinking. Morrisby can demonstrate your potential.  The event is taking place on the afternoon of 11th March. Please ask your parents to check their email and discuss the idea.
