Planning and working with your teachers, you’ll use trips, visits and activities to pick up new ideas or apply methods you’ve developed in class.

Representatives from companies, industry experts, artists, drama companies, voluntary organisations, university academics, MPs and former students are regularly invited by teachers to come and give valuable talks to students. These give practical insights into particular subjects and topics and help you keep your learning both interesting and relevant. Experts are also called on to help assess and judge student presentations.
