Work Experience

Our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) Programme involves students in a wide range of activities and opportunities to support students in thinking ahead to the world of work.  Some of these opportunities occur in the normal curriculum and some outside of it in extra curricular and enrichment activities.

In Year 8, students can arrange to spend a day at work with their parent/carer as part of the Take Your Child to Work Scheme, those who remain in school take part in a vartiety of activities that explore the skills required in the world of work.

In Year 10, students take part in a 2 week work experience programme where they spend 1 or 2 weeks as employees in the real work place. In the past, students have worked in such areas as the areospace industry, schools and nurseries, hairdressers, retail, banking and veterinary practices.
