Although Work Experience is not arranged through the school, we encourage our students in KS4 and KS5 to find work placements during the school holidays. The aim is to help give them a better understanding of, and be better prepared for, life in the adult workplace. Students can request to meet with Mrs Lee who will discuss what type of work experience would be beneficial according to each student’s aspirations and choices. Students are encouraged to research what type of work experience would suit them and further guidance will be offered on how to contact employers for work placements.
On Friday 1 July 2022 we piloted a Work Shadow Day for Year 10. Students were encouraged to spend the day with a Parent or nominated Guardian to experience the world of work in a variety of settings. This will be added to our annual programme for Year 10s going forward.
