A fantastic group of year 6 students and parents from Surrey Square Primary School visited Eversheds law firm this week. The students participated in a presentation about the many different career paths in the City and a talk from one of the firm’s Partners on what it is to be a lawyer and work in a business. The students asked very insightful questions and relished the opportunity to sit in a corporate board room with a close up view of St Paul’s Cathedral! The tour of the office was a real highlight and the whole event was thoroughly enjoyed by all. One student said “I liked the tour and learning about what the buildings are like and what is going on in the City”. The teacher commented “This whole event has been very interesting and a worthwhile experience for all children”.
"A really fun and very interesting experience, inspiring!"
