In Sixth Form, all students undertake at least one work placement to gain valuable skills and to inform their decision-making.
Employers often comment on the impressive focus and can-do attitude of our students. In the past, girls have gained open invitations to return, offers of work, or made long-lasting contributions to products or services.
Our Cambridge location allows us to forge connections with many employers, across the East, as well as in London. We offer placements in dynamic small businesses through to world-leading organisations. Examples of some of our placement employers include Mott MacDonald, the Babraham Institute, Purcell Architects, Cheffins Fine Art, SOS Children's Villages, Microsoft Research, the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University.
Placements span diverse sectors, including:
- Archiving and curating
- Charity work
- Computer science
- Finance and banking
- Marketing and PR
- Media, including Sky TV, BBC, local radio and newspapers
- Medicine, nursing, therapies and healthcare sciences
- Psychology research
