Six Year 10 pupils visited the UK Headquarters of Rackspace; a
multinational managed cloud computing company. The work visit was
part of an initiative to raise awareness of careers related to Science,
Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Pupils had a tour of the
premises and got to speak to many employees working in technology. They learnt what it was like to work in an IT-based environment, the various skills needed and of the many opportunities the company offers to its employees. An inspiring and thought-provoking day was had by all the pupils.
A big thank you to Miss Baker for organising the trip.
