Year 10/11: Work Experience

Year 11 students take part in a week-long Work Experience placement during the first week of the September term.  We work with EBP SOUTH from the start of the process in the spring term of Year 10, right through to the autumn term when they attend. 

Students have the option of finding an own placement or applying online. For an own placement form please click here:  own placement form

It is important that they do not apply via both routes as a charge will be incurred.  A charge will also be made if a student does not attend an agreed placement.

If you have any questions about Work Experience please contact either:
