Work Experience October 2017
Here are some of the comments we received from employers about Year 11 and their work experience week:-
Sherwood Truck & Van
Adam did himself and the school very proud with his conduct throughout his week with us. There could be an opportunity next summer for an apprenticeship for him.
Hannon Brothers Ltd
Jimmy has applied himself wonderfully. He has shown a great attitude to work, with a keen eye for detail and interpretation of the drawings he is working with. He has been on a large project and is using a robotic total station with great accuracy, allowing the workforce to build the retail.

Jess has had a fantastic week with us and her attitude has been second to none. She was incredibly polite and well mannered, inquisitive (asking appropriate and good questions) and she remained motivated throughout the week. In fact my colleague thought that Jess was the best work experience student we’ve had.
Sam performed very well last week. He was at two of our sites throughout the week and had a mixture of tasks to perform – which he did well. He was punctual, conscientious and polite at all times and also worked well with others. Please pass on our thanks to him and wish him good luck in the future.
It has been a pleasure to host Georgia’s work experience this week at Quotient. Georgia has arrived promptly each day and has a great attitude throughout the week. She has been extremely open and receptive and has worked very well with each person she has spent time with.
Katie arrived at our work place every day. Punctual and very smart. She was a quick learner and delivered every task to a very high standard. Katie worked on the shop floor and also our stockroom. She carried out numerous tasks from putting out stock for our various ranges throughout the store to date checking (which is a very important part of our day to day running of the store).
She has a lovely manner and fitted in with our team perfectly. If Katie is ever looking for employment and I have a vacancy I would not hesitate to put her forward. We have already asked Katie to let us have her CV for future reference.
