Next Steps - Summer 2021

There are lots of things Year 11 and Year 13 students can do between June and September to prepare for Further Education and to stay motivated over the Summer months.

We are so proud of the ways our Year 11 and Year 13 students have risen to the challenges of the past couple of years. We are pleased that so many have worked so hard for their qualifications this summer: not only for the sake of these qualifications, but also to prepare for the next stage of their education.

Things to do Online

See the 'Year 11 Summer Provision' PDF at the bottom of this page for an overview of the many things you can do online to make the most of your time this Summer, from taking a Virtual Work Experience placement to watching inspirational TED Talks in a range of subjects, or joining the WES alumni network at Future First and seeing what Speakers for Schools have to offer young people outside the classroom.


We hope all our students will be inspired to make the most of their free time before moving onto the next stage of their education this year.


Holiday work

Some students in Year 11 may wish to take part-time paid employment over the holiday and get a full experience of the world of work.

Students aged 13 – 16 who have a part-time job or holiday work need to ensure that their employer has applied for an employment permit from the council where the business is based.

Pupils aged 15 and 16 can be employed up to 8 hours a day from Monday to Saturday and 2 hours on Sunday for a maximum of 35 hours across the week.

All pupils must have two weeks leave during the school holidays.

Please see the pdf below for further information about employer permits for young people.
