For over 18 months now many students have struggled with the fallout of the pandemic, with persisting levels of restrictions continuing to affect everybody’s lives, especially young people. Such disruption has left students feeling in a state of limbo, with many enriching activities stripped from the curriculum. Groby Brookvale is one such school that has been looking to get their students out of the classrooms and into the world for some real-life experience. That’s why they reached out to us to see if we could give the students a day at the office.
About Brookvale Groby Learning Campus
Brookvale Groby Learning Campus is a school based in Leicester in the East Midlands, UK. Brookvale Groby is a Multi Academy Trust which until Sept 2019 comprised of two schools, Groby Community College and Brookvale High School. In September 2019 the two schools merged to form a new school called Brookvale Groby Learning Campus. We welcome young people from our partner primary schools in Groby, Ratby, Kirby Muxloe and Newtown Linford, and from other primary schools subject to availability of places. For September 2019 we will have 240 spaces available in Year 7. We also welcome students from a range of other secondary schools into Year 12 where they can study A Levels and vocational Level 3 courses in our successful Post 16 centre.

EverythingGlobal Opens its Door for Brookvale Groby Students
After the unpredictable times that many students have been facing, we wanted to give the opportunity to A-level Business students to visit the business and see what it’s all about here at Global Headquarters. So, on Wednesday 13th October 2021 we opened our doors to 15 students. We kicked them off with one of our infamous ‘fuddles’ (fun huddle), followed by some engaging workshops with our sales and marketing teams. We finished the day by bringing in EverythingGlobal’s owner and ex-pupil of Groby School, Paul Rowlett, to give his story of success (and failures) surrounding the business. The students left inspired and refreshed from immersing themselves in a new environment. Will Teece, head Teacher said:
