Enrichment Week 17th – 21st July

About Enrichment Week

Work experience is a valuable opportunity for you to gain some experience of the working world and its disciplines – perhaps even to clarify a career intention – and to gain an added incentive for school work in this your most important year.

We have found over the last couple of years that universities, colleges and employers are looking at other skills you have outside of school and some are not offering places without a set amount of work experience. Please seek and arrange your own placement for the date indicated – there is some flexibility with the date if required.

It is vital that you complete one of the attached application forms indicating whether you have arranged a work experience placement or if you will be volunteering in school.

We would recommend you try not to take a holiday during this week but if so then you need to fill in the appropriate holiday form (See application forms below).  

Only fill in one form please.

No late applications for work experience will be processed after the deadline of 31st March. You will be expected to be in school if you have nothing in place.

For further details please see Janet in the Sixth Form Office or Maggie Burton in Blue Base.

Information on employers on file, choosing a primary school or choosing your own company

Please have a look at the attached form which shows some company details that you may be interested in. If the company that you are looking for is not on the list, no problem – just bring your forms back before 24th March and school will get in contact with the company for you.

IMPORTANT: Anybody applying to a Primary School please do not contact them directly. Speak with Mrs Burton in BlueBase or Mrs Garford in the Sixth Form Office.
