Representatives from Careers Wales, Students Finance Wales and Futurewise were also available to offer careers advice.

Head of Christ College Emma Taylor said: “It is rare for representatives of so many different institutions and organisations to be gathered together at a school. It was evident from the buzz in the Sports Hall that those attending, pupils, parents and careers advisors both from Christ College and the wider community, were making the most of this opportunity to find out about higher education options and issues. It was a hugely enjoyable and informative event.”
