Year 10 Work Experience

Year 10 work experience will take place on the week of 4th July – 8th July 2016. The aims of the scheme are:

To give you the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of typical working conditions.

To help you discover something about your own skills, preferences and talents.

To give you responsibilities that will help you gain more confidence in yourself.

There is a huge demand for placements and therefore it is important to begin the process early. Placements can be organised through the school but we cannot guarantee being able to find placements which are too specific. If you wish to obtain a place in a particular field, it is important that you organise your own placement early on and so we recommend that this is done over the summer break between Year 9 and Year 10.

The application procedure for both approaches is clearly set out in the Work Experience Booklet, but if at any time during the process you have any queries or concerns then please see Dr E Dando or Mrs C Clixby. Parents or guardians can call reception on 01246 201191.

Please note that in order for the process to run smoothly it is vital that all forms are completed by the dates stated and returned promptly.
