Many students at Wickersley take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities with both school and also independently to pursue their own interests. Volunteering and work experience can really add to a young persons insight into the world of work and also offer a valuable addition to their CV and college, university and job applications.
Volunteering within school ranges from helping out with sports to the library and the range of community opportunities available through the DoE scheme.
