Work Experience

The highly regarded Work Experience programme runs for one week, and is open to all of our Yr10 students. It aims to give them a high quality placement, in accordance with statutory Health & Safety (H&S) regulations. An important part of the preparation for Work Experience is our ‘Mock Interview’ scheme, whereby students complete an application form and are then interviewed by professionals from local businesses and organisations. The students also complete a detailed online H&S quiz which emphasises the importance of H&S in any work place.

If you’d like to offer a work experience placement or be involved in any of our Careers related activities, please contact Mrs J Powney – 01977 601732.

Our year 10 students have completed a successful Work Experience placement week in March. Students spent time with a huge variety of employers/businesses including schools and sports facilities, garages and shops.
