Work experience & WRL

Gaining experience in the workplace

As part of the Year 10/11 Curriculum, students are given the opportunity to take part in a Work Experience or Work Related Learning placement. They complete an application form and then attend an Interview with our Work Experience co-ordinator, Mrs Julia Pitt. During this time students are encouraged to discuss their hopes and plans for the future and hopefully a work placement is found which will give them an insight in to what their ‘dream job’ might entail.

This year students have been given the opportunity to work along side Vets, Electricians, Teachers, Computer Programmers and a Michelin Star chef.

For students not taking part in Work Experience they have had Work Related Learning Experiences and had the opportunity to meet people who work with the public, in the Scientific field or the Legal profession. Trips have taken place to Hampshire Constabulary Marine Unit and Recruitment, Hampshire Scientific Services and Basingstoke Magistrates Court.

If you are part of an organisation that could support the school with Work Experience placements or work related activities please contact
