Copleston High School

Copleston High school work experience

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions  this year's Work Experience for year 10 will be reviewed and an update published at a later date..


It has historically taken place for a fortnight in June and provided year 10 students with wide ranging skills for life and to help them with their  personal development as well as their post-16 choices. A wealth of local businesses and organisations have supported this scheme and it has been a huge success for all involved for many years. For further information, please contact:
