Work Experience

Royal Mail welcomed Carew Academy student, Luke to their Wallington delivery office for some invaluable work experience. He received a tour of the mail centre in order to understand the journey of a letter and learnt how to sort mail.

Luke enjoyed his work experience so much that he has been inspired to consider a future with the Post Office . He said: “I really enjoyed my time at the delivery office, learning new things and understanding what to do. It has made me think about a career at Royal Mail. I can imagine myself being a postman as I enjoy sorting letters and getting to know people.”

Luke made a great impression and was a credit to his school, a sentiment echoed by delivery office manager, Paul Cardno, who said: “My colleagues enjoyed showing Luke the ropes. They felt proud to help out a local school and students who might not otherwise get this opportunity”.

Well done Luke!

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
