Students got a taste of the careers they are hoping to pursue in future when they spent a week out on work experience.

Year 11 students spent the first week of term on work experience with companies from a range of industries, including law, emergency services, health & beauty, theatre, retail, pharmaceutical, banking, education, veterinary, mechanics and hospitality.

Mr C Rhodes, Year 11 Manager, said: “Work experience provides students with a wonderful opportunity to get a taste of the careers they are interested in.

“For many of them, it has confirmed the career paths that they want to take in the future, whilst others have decided that maybe they should pursue other career options.

“We would like to say a big thank you to all of the businesses and organisations that allowed our students to do their work experience with them. It is incredibly important that they get this introduction to work as they head into their last year of school.”

Arrangements for next year's work experience placements will start over the coming weeks.
