Over 900 pupils attended Cromwell Community College’s annual post 16/18 convention last week – making it the biggest one yet.

Boasting nearly 50 stands, Cromwell’s is one of the biggest events of its kind in Cambridgeshire, inviting pupils from Witchford Village College as well as year 10, 11 and sixth form students at Cromwell.

Parents, as well as children and teachers from primary schools were also invited.

Presentations were given by College of West Anglia and Anglia Ruskin University including their Road Show bus.

Jill Clarke, personal development manager at Cromwell, said: “Many schools said how useful and informative the convention was because of the wide range of businesses and educational establishments there were.”
