In September 2014, the BBC will be offering school leavers three year contracts to work and train as Broadcast Engineers in a scheme supported by industry partners ITV, Channel 4, Red Bee Media and Arqiva. This is a higher level apprenticeship that supports study towards a BEng (Hons) Degree in Broadcast Engineering accredited by the Universities of Salford and Birmingham City, whilst also offering work placements with the BBC and some of our partners. All university tuition fees will be paid by the BBC, as well as an apprentice’s salary.

It’s a huge opportunity for people passionate about broadcasting, so in addition to excellent A-levels (or equivalent), you’ll need evidence that you have an interest in media technologies.

Successful applicants will be part of a new generation of Broadcast Engineers that will help to build and support the broadcasting industry.

Notice about Year 10 Work Experience

Advance notice!!

As parents are probably aware, during Year 10 all students at Edmonton County are required to complete a fortnight of Work Experience.  In 2014 this is scheduled for 30th June to 11th July 2014.

It is preferable for students to find placements for themselves- these are known as Private Placements. Parents should ensure that the employer is reputable and has the correct employer’s liability insurance. Ideally, the placement should last the full two weeks.

Since other schools in the borough will be doing their Work Experience during the same time there will be a high demand for places in 2014 so we urge parents and students to begin looking for a placement as soon as possible. 

Further information will be given to your child soon.

Year 7 Welcome Evening

Dear parents/carers,

We are holding a Year 7 Welcome evening on Thursday 3rd October at the Cambridge campus.

The evening will be an opportunity to find out more about your child’s new school. A carousal of informative talks on the year 7 curriculum, homework, literacy and behaviour expectations will enable you to support your child further and ensure that we can work together to focus on your child achieving their best potential in school. Refreshments will also be served.

The evening will start promptly at 6.00pm and end at 7.15

We hope to see you there.
