Over 40 pupils recently completed a week long work experience placement giving them a taste of life within the world of work. A fantastic experience was had by all and many pupils returned with greater confidence levels and raised aspirations. The feedback the pupils received from the employers was extremely positive clearly highlighting their potential to be successful in the future. The school is very proud of all of the participants in the programme. This experience will allow the pupils to work towards an Intermediate 1 unit award in Work Experience.
