Year 10 Work Experience
Mon, Jun 10, 2019 8:47 AM

Forty eight Year 10 students were involved in completing a week’s work experience in May. This was a pilot project with the view to increasing participation numbers for next year’s Year 10 cohort. The students were placed with a wide variety of local employers and businesses, including riding stables, nurseries, primary schools, leisure centres, manufacturing and design companies, architects, retail and office work. 

The students involved have been overwhelmingly positive about their experience, stating that they developed many skills and gained confidence in new situations.  The local businesses and employers have been extremely impressed by our students and were very complimentary in their reports - a few extracts can be read below.

"I would employ him tomorrow "       " … is a credit to his family and his school "    

"… showed real team work ...I would give her a job "

"… was a pleasure to have here - well done"             "… has a bright future"
