Work experience enables our students to spend a period of time out of school learning about a particular job or area of work.
All Year 10 and Year 12 students are expected to participate in a work experience placement. Over the years we have seen massive benefits for students who attend work experience as it allows them to spend time in a working environment, meet new people and learn more about themselves as learners. Year 10 students are introduced to work experience in their PSHE lessons and they will attend their work experience placements during Enrichment Week. Year 12 students are able to do a one-off week at any point throughout the year or they may choose to do a regular placement if it fits in with their timetable.
