Work Experience

Year 10 Work Experience will be Monday 30 June to Friday 4 July 2014

Information for Parents and Students

Parents will receive a letter at the beginning of December titled Work Experience Acknowlegement. The reply slips are to be completed and returned by 11 December 2013.

ALL year 10 students must complete the Standard Application Form, take it home to be checked and signed, and then return it to their tutors for them to complete the tutor reference. Completed forms are then to be given to Mrs Tull BEFORE 20 December 2013. Forms received after this will be marked late and will be allocated placements after the others.

The Own Placement Application Form is to be completed by all students and their prospective employer for any placement arranged by the student. These must be returned to Mrs Tull BEFORE 7 February 2014. Some companies will not confirm a place so far ahead, if this is the  case Mrs Tull must be informed. NB An extra charge, which will be passed on to the students,  will be incurred for any own placements arranged outside of Berkshire.

Any queries should be sent to

Student and Parent Guidance information from Central Berkshire Education Business Partnership.
