Older pupils are given the opportunity to develop work place skills through the secondary work experience programme. All Year 10 pupils complete a work experience placement for one week. All pupils in year 11 have a two- week placement. These can be in supported environments, however, pupils are encouraged to select placements appropriate to their level of independence. The work related learning programme involves many aspects of vocational education and this is supplemented by the link with Croydon and Carshalton Colleges where all Year 11 pupils attend one day per week in the Autumn or Spring term.
