WORK EXPERIENCE
Well done to all those pupils (and thank you
to parents/carers!) who have arranged and
confirmed placements. Work experience is a
fantastic opportunity for our young people
and something the school strongly supports.
The feedback we receive, year on year, from
pupils and employers who take part in our
work experience programme tells us how
much they enjoy it and how they benefit
from the experience. I am sure that this year
will be no exception.
Band X pupils
(16

don’t forget,
you will go straight to your work experience
placement after the Easter break, Monday

after the holidays will be Monday 23

You need to be especially organised!
Make
sure you have all the information you need
about your placement before the end of
term – if in doubt, ask me!
Band Y pupils (23-27

you have a
week in school following the holidays before
you go out on work experience, so if you
need anything please ensure you come and
see me in the 3Rs office during the first week

I will be available during the Easter holidays

or by
phone 01805 623531 ext 365 if you need to
contact me regarding an unexpected change
