Year 8 students gained an insight into the workplace for two days on 5th & 6th July.  They produced some very interested diaries, which showed how much they had learnt and gained from this experience. Students went to a wide variety of places, including Mars Wrigley Confectionary, Hendon Police Headquarters, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Free Hospital, Russian Ballet Studios, the BBC, Historic England, the Science Museum and Shell UK. 

The following comments about what they learnt are from the students’ booklets:

Key steps to become a teacher, one being to have control over a child/the class.

How to communicate with ‘difficult’ individuals, even if they are rude to you.
