Around 500 pupils in Year 6 and 7 enjoyed the event from schools in March and the surrounding villages.

Alison Chandler, of the organisers, said: “The purpose of the event was to open children’s eyes to the wide variety of careers available and inspire them to work hard through secondary school.”

At the day were children and teachers from All Saints, Burrowmoor, Cavalry, Guyhirn, Townley, Westwood primary schools and Neale-Wade Academy.

The event was organised by the March cluster of schools.
