Work Experience

The two-week Work Experience, for our Year 10 students, takes place from 29 June to 10 July this year.

As a school, we pride ourselves on persistently offering our Year 10 students a ‘Work Experience’ opportunity, even when it was no longer deemed compulsory by the Government. We have always believed in the unique value that work experience adds to a student’s overall education and it is a time that students remember as an exciting challenge. Many students go on to gain part-time work and even full-time apprenticeships from their initial work experience placement.

We always encourage students to find their own placement, wherever possible, and we currently have over 40 students who have already secured their own place of work for this year.

Many thanks to parents/carers, and their connections, who have already helped in this process; however, there are still students who will need to find a suitable placement. So, if you have personal contacts, connections, friends or family who could offer a one-week or two-week placement, 29 June – 10 July 2015, please ask your child to collect an orange self-placement form from Miss Wilson in A4.

The placement details will then be sent to, and checked by, Sheffield Council for approval and confirmation of the required Employer Liability Insurance. Many thanks in advance for any support you can offer in securing suitable placements.
