Work Experience and College Taster Days
We want to encourage as many opportunities as possible for our students to visit colleges and to have work experience, however these need to be after school hours or during school holidays. All colleges usually have an Open Evening which does not clash with the school day so please select to go to those. Most work experience is flexible so please select to go in the school holidays. In exceptional circumstance Mr Reeves will give authorised absences for students who have good attendance and always catch up on work missed. We do not want to disadvantage our student’s education and we do offer several Year 10 Taster Days in school time.
Thamesmead Careers Opportunities
Thamesmead students take part in many Careers Events including the Enterprise Challenge, CSI days, University visits, STEM challenges and Taster Days at local colleges.
