Prior to the placements you will learn how to prepare for work experience, what is expected from students during the work experience placement, and what the benefits of taking part in work experience. You will conduct a visit to the placement with a member of staff from Brompton Hall School. Brompton Hall School’s work experience programme is overseen by Miss Dunn.
