Willmott Dixon is one of the biggest construction companies in the UK and they have decided to partner up with our school. This will provide St James students with access to real life experiences within the construction industry. St James students will also have the privilege to complete their work experience with the company, and potentially go onto secure apprenticeships with them in the future. Willmott Dixon will also support any careers events at St James and have lots of plans to expand our access to real life careers opportunities.
To launch the adoption of our school, St James students were invited to visit their construction site on Middlemoor. They are currently building a new Custody Suite for the Exeter Police Station. The project is set to cost £25 Million and will be completed in January 2020. A lucky group of year 9 students were able to experience the project first-hand and came away with the best of impressions.
A huge thank you to the staff who were so welcoming, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
