Students were empowered by learning about their future careers, finances and community as part of a PLEDGES day at Ely College.
The #PLEDGESandFuturesDay was the last event of the school term which was led by staff and external speakers.
Year 7 worked in the hall most of the day with Learn 2 Earn activities, provided by Young Enterprise.
Students worked as a year group, empowering them to make informed decisions about their future careers and finances.
Year 8 completed a series of citizenship sessions including:
- Safety for school, led by Sgt Phil Priestly and his team at Cambridgeshire Police.

Year 9 celebrated the diverse background of the college including culture, sport, food and festivals.
