Great Generation Sixth Form Conference

We had a ‘GREAT’ day on 24th June, welcoming students from across Wales to our annual Great Generation Sixth Form conference. This leadership training day is a great way to celebrate the gifts of young people to inspire them to take action.

The conference took place at Archbishop McGrath Catholic High School in Bridgend, on Wednesday 24 June 2015 and welcomed students from sixth forms across Wales, including St Joseph’s, Newport, St Joseph’s in Port Talbot, Bishop Vaughan in Swansea, St Alban’s in Pontypool and of course Arbishop McGrath the host school.
