In June our new year 11 students had their work experience programme, with 100% of our students finding a placement. The majority of students arranged this themselves, we had such a vast range of placements, from Vets to Primary schools, solicitors to Tattoo studios and many, many more. Many of our students stayed in the local towns yet we had a few that went to Stafford to complete their placement with the British Army.
Work experience is a great opportunity for our students, as it gives them the chance to have an insight into what is involved in their desired career, The roles that are performed and daily tasks that come with any career.
I would like to say that I am so very proud of all our students as they have represented Weobley high school to a high standard, I have been blown away by all the feedback that I have had back from employers with it all being very positive and our students have behaved professionally, some have been offered employment which is amazing.
Below are a couple of quotes from placements.
