JHS Students ''Take Over''

On Friday 24 February students from Jack Hunt School were given the chance to “Take Over” their school and local businesses.

Fifty-five positions were available for students ranging from Headteacher, Head of House, Business Manager and IT Network Manager. Successful students spent the day shadowing their members of staff enabling them to gain a real insight into the running of a large Secondary School and get to see what really happens behind the scenes.

In addition to the school positions, “Take Over” placements were also offered at Peterborough Hospital, Partner Primary Schools, Anglia Water and Anglia Ruskin University. Positions at Peterborough Hospital included work shadowing in Nursing, Physiotherapy, Midwifery, Pharmacy and Bio Medical Science. At Partner Primary Schools students were offered a range of positions including teaching posts, Teaching Assistants and Headteachers.

Assistant Headteacher, Chris Game said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for student to experience work placements to develop their knowledge and understanding of their chosen job. We had over 250 applications for the posts on offer and our students were very excited to be taking part. We are extremely thankful to our local partners who have supported this Take Over Day offering a wide variety of opportunities to our students”.
