More than 30 pupils at the Portishead school attended the event, which gave them the chance to speak to representatives of employers from the creative industries sector including Real World Studios, Tomato Source branding agency, Tricia Designs, Dave Pratt Photography and costume design student Catherine Pilsworth from the Bristol Old Vic.

The teenagers had the chance to ask questions, with great feedback given from the companies involved.

Gordano School careers adviser Lisa Gardiner said: “We’re privileged to have such a great network of businesses that want to help at our careers events.”
