Once again work experience has been a phenomenal success for our Year 11 students. This year extremely high standards have been set and many of our pupils have excelled at their chosen placements. The feedback we have received from our work experience providers has been nothing but positive. Many have commented about how pleasant the students have been and the impeccable attitude they have displayed.
All students were successful in their work experience completion. Many have applied themselves so well that they were offered employment. Three of our students were offered apprenticeships due to the good impression they created. They are soon to be offered day release at these placements as they were considered to be invaluable to the companies. Never before have we had such success from our students. Needless to say we are all very proud of their achievements.
