Work Experience

We believe in person work experience provides an invaluable opportunity for students to gain insight into the work place; to see how the skills they are learning in school and the subjects they have chosen are relevant to their future career.

Pupils in Year 10 and the Sixth Form benefit from annual work experience placements.

Ofsted, 2022

We work closely with Unifrog to provide this chance for students to dive into theUnifrog Logo world of work. Students are asked to source their own placement in the first instance. Using Unifrog, students can research various job sectors and roles. Once students have found their placement, they enter the details onto the Placements tool and then Unifrog ensure that all health and safety assessments and correct insurances are in place. They support students to reflect on their experiences and collate employer feedback. If students struggle to find a placement, as a school, we can provide a variety of opportunities for students to apply for to ensure all our students participate in this event.

We are delighted to be able to provide you with a parent code in order for you to access Unifrog: Simply visit to get signed up.
