The Burgess Hill Academy in association with Burgess Hill Business Parks were proud to present their Work Experience Student of the Year Award during their Post 16 Information Evening on 21st September.
Over 120 Year 10 students were placed in companies within Sussex and the surrounding area, some even travelled up to London. The winner gave an excellent presentation to the parents and honoured guests attending the Post 16 Information Evening on their work experience placement and the value it gave to their school life.
The winner was Lauren Wickens, who spent her week at Boots the Chemist in Brighton where she made the most of the opportunity afforded to her and gained valuable experience. The Academy are extremely grateful for the time that local businesses are able to give to help our students understand the working world.
