To begin the application process please complete the WEX Application form found below, ensuring you state;

  • when you would like to carry out your work experience
  • why you wish to undertake the work experience
  • expected duration and pattern of work experience
  • subject preferences

and return it to the HR Department. We will write for references as part of this process so please ensure current contact details are provided on the form for your referees.

Your application will need to be agreed by the Headteacher and subject leaders. We may not be able to accommodate your request.
