Pupils have been benefitting from work experience opportunities and a visit from the Royal Navy Engagement Team

Visit of  Royal Navy Engagement Team

The Royal Navy Engagement Team visited the senior school to do an exercise with Year 9 pupils who have signed up for CCF Royal Navy for the next academic year.

The pupils had a great time, with the Royal Navy instructors feeding back that the pupils were superb in engagement and ability. We look forward to welcoming the Engagement Team back next year.

Careers – Work Experience

Over the Easter holidays, Year 13 pupil Fred had an excellent week with Burgess Yachts at their London Head Office. The week was facilitated by OG Joff Beckett (OSH 1971 – 75).

Fred said “I had an amazing time there, everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable in their field, and they all gave me a great insight into the industry”.

Joff is also hoping to be able to offer work experience placements to other current Gresham’s Sixth Form pupils.

Furthermore, Duncan Baker MP is facilitating summer work experience to three current Sixth Form pupils in his North Norfolk Constituency.

Work Experience is such an added plus for a young person’s next steps post Sixth Form education, giving an added dimension to next stage studies, knowledge and employment.
