// Work Experience

Work Placements are a priority for us at Focus 1st Academy as we want our students to develop their skills to the fullest.

Once the student has informed us about his/her interests and competences, we will aim to find a work experience that suits his/her expectations. Ideally, students will be attending their placements for 2 days a week during school hours.

Just inform us of which activities and subjects you enjoy the most and we will do our best to find a work experience that suits your skills

// Activities

Focus 1st Academy provides our students with different extracurricular activities throughout the school year in order to enrich their experience at our Academy. The most common activities include trips to Alexandra Palace Ice Rink, picnic in the park or bowling.

We also work closely with the London Fire Brigade, where the students can take part in a 4 day Life course which has proved very successful with previous students.
