School News

The School provides regular newsletters to the Parents of pupils and we will henceforth reproduce any interesting news on the OBA website. The most recent newsletter was in July, marking the end of the School year.

Year 12 Work Placements required!

Martin Green, head of Year 12 at the School, has asked if any Old Bordenians are able to offer a work placement to students. Martin says:

"I have asked our current year 12 students to arrange a work shadowing placement for themselves for the week of 27th June - 1st July as experience of the work place is vital as they approach the end of their school education. A number of our students are struggling to find places this year as firms are often unable to have a student with them for a week.

Could I ask that you forward this message to your members and ask them if they (or their friends and family) might be able to offer a year 12 student a placement.

If there are any Old Bordenians, in any line of work, that are able to help, please could they contact me by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and I will pass their details on to appropriate students.

Many thanks for your help.
