Work experience is an important part of our careers programme. All students in Years 11 and 12 spend a week with an employer, which is often their first exposure to the working world. The placement is generally linked to the students current courses, future career aspirations or an area they have an active interest in. The work experience week is in the summer term after the examination period, in July.
We work with a company – Sirrond Ltd – who help us to build a database of opportunities. Students are encouraged to find their own placement but the students can also choose a placement from the database.
Year 11 placement dates: 1 to 5 July 2019
Year 12 placement dates: 15 to 19 July 2019
