Students undertake a week of Work Shadowing at the very start of Year 13. This is an essential part of The Sixth Form Curriculum and students are advised to arrange placements as soon as possible.
We have a large database of over 500 possible placement opportunities as well as having excellent personal relationships with a large number of businesses.
We have now moved over to an online system for the completion of all forms. Please click here to complete the online WES 5 form.
The school subscribes to the Oxfordshire Work Experience (OWE) system where all student placements are checked to ensure safeguarding of the students. Please be aware that, should a student choose to do a placement that is out of Oxfordshire, OWE make a charge of £30 to check the Health & Safety via a cross county link. The payment of this charge is the responsibility of parents, who will be invoiced prior to the placement taking place.
OWE also provide the school with a database called WebView which students can assess to search for jobs in all areas of work. Each student is issued with a personal login name and pin number as well as the link to the site.
Should any parent wish to discuss any aspect of placements then please feel free to contact Nigel Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org who will endeavor to resolve any issues or concerns.
