Year 10  Work Experience

The variety of placements this year was very broad, ranging from favourites such as veterinary practices, schools and retailers to some very unusual businesses.

Harry thoroughly enjoyed his fortnight at Clayhill Farm, assisting in the care of game birds - the stuffed pheasant displayed on his stand during Tuesday’s Presentation Day drawing lots of attention from curious visitors!

Jessica travelled to London for her placement in the Public Relations department of Marie Curie Cancer Care, and Joshua worked with the Voluntary Services Department of Southampton General Hospital.

Cullan and Rachel spent their time with the Hampshire Police Force, whilst Callum became a temporary member of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service in Eastleigh!

Some placements required a very flexible approach to working hours. Ellie’s fortnight at Boundary Oak School was a “live-in” post, and she spent her nights at the School looking after the young boarders in the evenings and ensuring she was on hand to rouse them out of their beds early in the mornings.

Charlton enjoyed his placement with the Southern Daily Echo, shadowing members of the Sports Team as they prepared reports and researched material for articles. He impressed them so much that they have offered him the opportunity to go back in the football season and work there. Sam certainly impressed his employers during his time at St Monica Junior School . A keen athlete, Sam spent much of his placement assisting the PE Teacher, who has offered Sam a job helping with Sports Camps during the summer holidays! In fact, over 20 students were offered job placements following their work experience - which is very impressive, particularly in the current economic climate.

The quality of displays at the Presentation Day was superb, and the day was a great opportunity for parents, staff, governors, trustees and employers to see how much the students had gained from their placements.

We should like to take this opportunity to thank all the employers who took part in this year’s Work Experience Programme, providing our students with the opportunity to gain so many new skills.
