Y10 Work Experience week
Our Y10 students enjoyed a week of Work Experience from 18 - 22 January.
PLS staff visited our students in their various placements and have received lots of positive feedback about how well they are doing.
Words about our students include 'proactive', 'confident',' exceptional', 'hardworking'; some have earned opportunities to get involved with other initiatives, or been invited to return to their placement place to do some paid work.
Sekai, Khadijah, Denisha and Jazmin received high praise, and have a possible opportunity to build links between the secondary and primary in the future.
