Year 10 Work Experience

Wilmslow High School believes that a week of work experience is a very valuable part of each student’s Key Stage 4 curriculum. We therefore include it in the school calendar for Year 10.

In the past, we have found that the most effective placements are those which are arranged by students through parents, friends or relatives.  We hope you will begin the process early.

Mrs Stephens gives students self-placement forms for students who know they would like to find a placement themselves.

In order to ensure that we are able to offer a week’s work placement to all students, £15 per student is collected as a contribution towards the administrative costs of sourcing and checking health and safety for the placements.

Every year some students are able to find unusual and stimulating placements beyond the local area. We are keen to support these but would urge that early contact is made with Mrs Stephens in order that any issues concerning the Health and Safety checks can be addressed. Her email address is
