Work experience 2021

Update on 2021 work experience

Our annual Year 10 work experience week was scheduled for July 2021.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of the current global health crisis and maintaining our responsibility for putting the health and welfare of students, school staff and all of the local businesses and employers first, we have had to make the very sad decision to cancel next year’s work experience programme. All of the businesses and employers have been contacted to inform them of our decision, although the majority of them had already contacted us to cancel the placements they had offered to us for 2021, in light of the global pandemic.

We understand how many of our students would have been looking forward to their work experience opportunity, and we totally share their disappointment, but of course our main priority is to ensure the health and safety of our pupils, the staff and all their families and of course the employers who support our work experience programme, throughout these difficult times.

We are investigating alternative work experience opportunities and will keep all stakeholders informed.
