Work Experience – Year 10 Students

Thank you to all the students who have already returned their competed paperwork. Unfortunately there are still a considerable number of students who have not done so.

It is imperative that the placements are organised and paperwork returned as soon as possible. Copies of the Work Experience Agreement forms are available from the school office.

Work Experience is part of the Year 10 curriculum and therefore all students MUST organise a placement.

Eco Laundry

We plan to launch the Eco Laundry very soon. Thank you for everyone’s donations so far! We are now up to date with the washing so everything is ready to swap or buy.

Any further donations of uniform would be gratefully received and should be taken to the school office.
