Clevedon School has received an award for the work it does in preparing students for employment.

Rosie and Millie Lane, year 13 students, picked up the Employability Charter Mark from the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership at Burges Salmon in Bristol. This recognises the ways in which the school prepares its students for work life, such as holding discussions and mock interviews as part of Clevedon Connections – a group of local businesses that hold visits.

One of the ways the school has been preparing students has been a talk over Skype from former student David Nichols, who chatted to current year 13 pupils about his time as a medical student in South East Asia.
