Work Experience Information

GCSE Mathematics


Six of our year 10 pupils have been identified and given the opportunity to study GCSE mathematics. Delivered by Mr Lambert and support from Miss Merricks, the pupils will study the OCR Mathematic B – J567 specification, where they will extend their knowledge of number, algebra, geometry, measures and statistics. At the end of the two year course the pupils will complete two examinations, a calculator and non-calculator paper, each 1 hour 30 minutes. Homework will be set weekly and is important that it is completed to ensure topics are embedded. Please see below useful links to OCR and revision websites.

Carpentry Course: Year 10C


10C were fortunate enough to work with RM Training & VIY at Shard End Youth Club.


Students were shown how to make a bench using site carpentry skills and recognise and use hand tools and materials used in construction.  From this project students earned their Entry Level 3 qualification in Carpentry Skills.  We are very proud to be part of this fantastic project.


Imran, a Lead Mentor from VIY  said, ""It's great to see how young people develop their skills while doing the VIY project.  Many of them always had the feeling before that they were not very good at learning, but here, they realise they can learn skills very quickly, and that finding a job in something you really like is possible".  


VIY combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14-24 to learn trade and building skills, on the job, by committing to fix local youth club and community centre buildings in need of essential repairs.  VIY participants are mentored by professional tradespeople, who also volunteer their time, and gain vocational accreditations as well as access to further training, work placement and apprenticeship opportunities with local employers beyond the project.
