Students in Years 10 - 13 are given additional leadership opportunities such as; Sports Captains, House Captains, Prefects and Head Boy/Girl.
These opportunities enable students to improve their self-confidence, self-reliance and build on important life and social skills.
Work Experience Placements
After GCSE examinations, all students will be given the opportunity to deepen and enrich their studies and to go beyond just gaining qualifications. Students will get the chance to undertake a tailored and meaningful work placement, shadowing business professionals in the workplace. They will be given the opportunity to attend a Careers Fair to further inform their choices of future career pathways.
This will develop a better understanding of their chosen industry and enable students to gain invaluable skills and experience before stepping into the workplace themselves. This will give students a fantastic head start when they leave Prior Park age 18, as well as a valuable addition to their CVs.
