Farnell Jaguar Bolton has rewarded three GCSE pupils with a taste of the motor industry.

Kelcea Macdonald, Lewis Shore and Jordan Greenhalgh (pictured) from Bolton's Harper Green School spent the afternoon at the Bolton Road, Farnworth Jaguar dealership as a reward for their outstanding efforts in their Maths and English studies.

The year 11 students were taken for a spin in some of the dealership’s luxury vehicles and gained an insight into motor industry careers from thge Vertu Motors-owned operation's general manager, James Boyd (pictured).

Boyd said: “The dealership was more than happy to give Harper Green pupils an insight into the motor retail industry. They were really interested in learning about the different routes into various different parts of the sector.

“I don’t think enough young people realise that there are opportunities to forge a career in every area of the sector, including marketing, sales, mechanics, hospitality, accounting, design and much more.”

Lewis Shore, one of the visiting pupils from Harper Green School, said: “It was great to spend some time at the dealership and speak to James about career opportunities. I didn’t realise there were quite so many options and it has certainly given me a lot to think about.”

Head of English at Harper Green School Clare Doherty said: “It’s great to be able to demonstrate the breadth of potential job opportunities with Farnell Jaguar to the students. I hope this is just the start of an ongoing relationship, which will benefit both our pupils, and Farnell.”
