Student’s learn about careers in construction

Barr’s Hill School has close links with the construction company Willmott Dixon, who offer work experience opportunities and potential apprenticeships to school leavers.


Willmott Dixon is the UK’s leading independent construction and property services company. Founded in 1852, Willmott Dixon is family run and dedicated to leaving a positive legacy in communities and environment.

Student’s recently visited the Firestation on Radford Road, which is currently under construction. 35 students attended the site tour plus a question and answer session with the company.

Our student’s gained a great insight from this visit and left with a different view on working in construction. Willmott Dixon are more than happy to take on student’s for work experience during the summer holidays. If you are interested in any work experience please speak to Careers Advisor, Mrs Forbes.
