Year 10 will take part in Work Experience from Monday 6th July to Friday 10th July 2020.

If your son/daughter would like to participate in Work Experience, the relevant paperwork will need to be completed and returned, along with payment by Friday 6th December 2019.

The following documents must be returned to school by Friday 6th December 2019,

  • Medical Questionnaire
  • Self-Placement Forms
  • Certificate of Public Liability

Payment for Work Experience (£29.50) also needs to be paid to school via on-line payments by Friday 6th December 2019. Payment for students on free school meals will be covered by the school.

Deadlines are set by EBP, the  external  agency, and need to be adhered to as they require time to complete the Health and Safety checks on the company agreeing to provide a placement for the student.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss this matter further please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Barlow via the General Office.
