“All pupils benefit from annual, purposeful work experience. Together with the careers guidance programme, pupils are exceptionally well prepared for their next steps” – Ofsted, 2019

Students in all year groups are provided with the opportunity for work experience every year. Our strong links with local and regional employers mean that we are able to help most students secure placements in science and engineering businesses relevant to their career aspirations.

In comparison to their peers at ‘ordinary’ schools, our students will spend double the hours in the real world developing vital skills and traits, making them highly employable.

This is reflected in our student destination statistics:

  • In 2021 100% of our leavers had confirmed university places, apprenticeships or employment.
  • In 2021 52% of our students chose to continue to higher education and 100% of those students secured a place at university. 
  • In 2021, 33% of our students were successful in securing prestigious apprenticeships, for example, with BAE Systems, the RAF, Anglian Water, Festo, Norfolk Police, Rolls Royce, and the Merchant Navy.
