Work Experience, Volunteering and Residentials

As part of our careers and life skills curriculum we regularly build on our learning in the classroom and in our community. Developing opportunities for experiencing the working environment either as a class, a group or where possible tailored for an individual, is important to us and our students.

We have regular enterprise projects and activities in school alongside participating in community projects such as hosting Senior Citizens or the Rotary Club Christmas Party, Volunteering at local shops and businesses as part of our Volunteer work or Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Running a small café one day a week in town or participating in residential experiences and the NCS programme. https://wearencs.com/ All helping to develop student’s confidence, teamwork and personal skills.

We are always on the look out for sympathetic employers to support our students understand about the working world. Anyone who is interested and would like to offer the opportunity of any type of work experience, a visit or to talk through your work place and working life with our students please contact us we would love to hear from you.
