Year 10 Extended Work Experience

Can all Year 10 students who have chosen the Extended Work Experience option for next year please make sure they have completed a work experience form today and handed it back to me.

Over the Summer, Careers Wales will need to check that the company you have chosen has the correct insurance and without the forms being sent off today - you will not be able to start in September.

I will be in Mr Gilchrist's Science room during TFL for you to hand me the forms.
