Do students work in a business that could help provide work experience or opportunities for our students?

We are always looking for local businesses that are wanting to inspire and educate our students about the world of work and expand and develop our ‘futures’ curriculum. If students think students could help to provide invaluable work experience or opportunities that give students the chance to develop core skills and motivation please contact the school to discuss.
