Year 10 and 12 Work Experience Cancelled

It is with a huge amount of regret that we have had to cancel the Year 10 and Year 12 work experience placements that were due to take place next week and the week beginning Tuesday 14th April.

As of this morning, we have already had 34 employers contact us to say they cannot take our work experience students due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and we suspect that this number will only increase as the week goes on. Therefore, we have taken the decision to cancel our work experience programme for this academic year. This is not a decision taken lightly but, as I am sure you can appreciate, these are unique times. We do hope that we can work together with our many employer partners to find a suitable date to rearrange this invaluable episode in every student's education.

All of our employer partners have been informed. However, if you have arranged your own placement, please could you also let your employer know of this cancellation and of our apologies for the short notice? Thank you.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for any hard work you have put into organising your week for yourself or your son/daughter. If you have any questions at all over this decision, please do not hesitate to contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Your son/daughter will be expected to be in school, therefore, for the week beginning Monday 23rd March 2020 and the week beginning Tuesday 14th April 2020. Normal lessons will continue throughout these two weeks, as you would expect.
