Year 10 Work Experience

The Year 10 Information and Work Experience evening will be held one evening in December from 6.00 - 7.00pm in the school hall. The evening will provide information relating to exams and controlled assessments which take place in Year 10, also covering the stages that need to be completed by the School, Parents and Students before students can be released from school to complete their work experience placement. It is important that all Year 10 parents and carers attend this evening with Year 10 students, if possible. We look forward to seeing you on the evening, if however you are unable to attend and would like to discuss this further, then please contact Mrs Eady, Careers Adviser, after the 14th December.
