Work experience:

Year 10/11 students participated in work experience. Here are more student accounts:

For our work experience we went to Vauxhall City Farm:

I really enjoyed my time on the farm.  I liked bottle feeding the baby goats and grooming the horses.

I really liked feeding the animals and looking after the baby goats.  It was very hard work cleaning out the stables and trying not to step in the dirt.

I liked the farm.  I liked feeding and cleaning out the chickens.  I didn’t like all the muck they made so I tried to jump over it!

For my work experience I worked at Sainsburys in Streatham.  The staff there were very nice and the customers were very friendly.  I learnt how to re-pack shelves and dress them.  I also learnt about the type of equipment they use which helped me throughout my time there.  It was overall a good place to work and I am happy with the effort I put in.

For my work experience I went to Holy Trinity CofE Primary School in Upper Tulse Hill.  I helped the class teacher with the Year 5 pupils and also the pupils in reception.  I preferred working with the younger children and really enjoyed it.

I went to do my work experience at the British Heart Foundation in Streatham.  I really enjoyed myself during the week because I learnt about customer care.  The best part was that I received a staff discount so I was able to buy lots of books and DVDs.

For my work experience I went to Holy Trinity CofE Primary School in Upper Tulse Hill.  I assisted staff in   their  classroom and playground duties which I really enjoyed.  I saw a different side to what support staff actually do and really enjoyed my time there.

Former Year 11 students participated in work experience.  Here are two student accounts:


 I went to the Work and Pension Centre in Central London where I met many interesting people and learnt a great deal about the government.  I spoke to the Minister of Education and shadowed the Minister’s secretary – finding out what ministers did on a daily basis.  My day also included visiting the video editing department to put clips together.  My day ended with a tour of the Houses of Parliament and I learnt about their history.  I really enjoyed it.

I went to Vodaphone at Piccadilly Circus for my work experience.  I found it really good and interesting.  I managed to sell to the customers, helped in organising the accessories and learnt about the different mobile phones they sell and the various price plans.  I spoke to a lot of customers and really enjoyed my day.
