Work experience is an important part of the careers and work related entitlement for Year 10 students. Year 12 students can also arrange a further period of work experience; this is particularly important as Higher Education courses increasingly have specific work expereince requirements.
Mr Pacey is the school's Head of Careers and Employability and is available to provide support in this area.
