Aspiration Day

Date: 15 Feb 2019

Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Sheffield Park Academy are delighted to invite you to our fifth annual ‘Aspiration Day’ that will be held at Sheffield Park Academy on Friday 15th February 2019.

The last two years have seen over 1000 students each year come through the careers fair from Sheffield Park Academy and over 200 students and their families from the other M1 cluster schools who are Sheffield Springs Academy, John Smeaton Academy (Leeds) and Barnsley Academy.

Aspiration Day this year will be the culmination of a programme of work to raise not only aspiration but the cultural capital of students within United Learning in Yorkshire.

A more detailed breakdown of the day will be available to you before the Christmas break but initially I would like to get an indication of who will be able to attend.

This year’s programme and timings will be in the following format.

We would greatly appreciate your help in recruiting representatives from local / national businesses to attend the event. This could be by bringing a stall with information about how you recruit graduates and trainees within your business and delivering information into the types of different work that you do. Students will be free to walk around the space in a market place exhibition type set up, being free to speak to one and all.

For more information or to book a stand please contact Matthew Wainwright on 0114 2392661 or 07761 257043 or email:

We very much looking forward to putting this day together and with your help and support we feel it could be another great success!
