National Literacy Trust Conference
This year The Gryphon School is taking part in the National Literacy Trust Conference which is happening from the 21st-29th January. As part of this all of Year 11 will be taking part in two live online “Literacy and Employability workshops”, one this Friday (22nd) afternoon on writing a good CV, and one next Friday (29th) afternoon on interview skills.
