Work Experience

Work experience at St Gregory’s


Work experience is so much more than just working for a business for one week in a student’s lower school career. It is learning from the world of work so not only are we offering virtual work experience to students during this year but we also visiting places of work within the students curriculum time. We have questions and answer sessions with different employers and understanding of the work of work during school trips. This understanding of the world of work enables students to be better prepared as they transition forward and enables them to make informed decisions, develop skills and become better prepared for their future careers. 


During year 12 the students attend a week long work experience opportunity as part of their career education programme within their time at the sixth form.


Work Experience at Allied Healthcare

We are delighted to announce that Allied Healthcare Mentor's next NHS virtual work experience session is on Sunday 6th November.
With the UCAS deadline for NHS Health Careers in January, students considering a career in Allied Healthcare need to gain as much work experience as possible. We strongly encourage all students (including those who attended October's session) to register. No two work experience days are the same.

Students can register for November’s session using this link:
This programme is suitable for students in years 10/S3/NI11 - 13/S6/NI14 who are interested in the following careers:

- Nursing
- Midwifery
- Paramedicine
- Physiotherapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Dietetics
- Radiography
- Prosthetics and Orthotics

Once they’ve registered, students will be emailed links to their virtual work experience portals.

Students are awarded a Work Experience Certificate for every session they complete. Those who complete the full 5-month programme will be awarded a Highly Commended Reference from the Presidents of Allied Healthcare Mentor. These are fantastic additions to their CVs and UCAS applications!

During the work experience day, students will follow 2 patients from their initial presentation to recovery. They will gain a unique insight into how patients interact with various healthcare professionals and what it’s like to work in an NHS multidisciplinary team.

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with healthcare professionals throughout each day. This will empower students to make informed career decisions and demonstrate their commitment to healthcare in their UCAS applications.

Students can register individually at any time throughout the 5-month programme using the link below. We recommend booking early to gain as much out of this programme as possible. Places are £10 a session to cover administrative and technological costs.

Success at School





Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
