Work Experience

Our students undertake a week of work experience in Year 10 and another in Year 12. These are key learning opportunities as young people explore future career pathways.

Our students benefit hugely from the relationships we have built up with local employers, who generously collaborate with us to set up opportunities in a wide range of workplaces.

“Riley and Ethan were exceptional and a real pleasure to work with. They were very keen to work alongside us, and they worked very well together whilst being very polite and diligent. They constantly asked ‘what's next’ after they successfully completed each task. Definitely two of the best we have ever had. Please pass on our thanks.”

If you are in a position to offer a work experience placement to one of our students please get in touch with our Careers and Work Experience Manager - contact details are on our main Careers page.

“I just wanted to let you know what an absolute privilege it was to have Aliya working in my Reception class at Wantage CE this week. She has been an absolute credit to your school and her family. Aliya has been punctual, well presented, and shown a huge level of maturity and flexibility as well as an abundance of initiative when working more independently with the children! If I could keep her, I would!”

“I just wanted to give some extra feedback as we were all so pleased with Katie. She has been a great help: she would see something that needed doing and would get on and do it without being asked and showed interested and good understanding of everything that went on. I really hope Katie had a good week, she seemed so natural with all the animals we had in. I said to her that if she would like to pursue Veterinary Nursing she’s very welcome to come back again for more work experience. We wish her all the very best for her future.”

“We would like to let you know that we were all very impressed with Harry last week. So much so, that we have taken his details, so that we can see if we can offer him an apprenticeship next year. I thought you would like to hear some positive feedback, as he was by far the best work experience student I have seen in my 24-year career.”
