Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering at Critchill School. Please note that we receive a high volume of requests from people seeking work experience opportunities often prior to further training. Whilst we try to help, it is not always possible and we appreciate this can be disappointing.

Volunteers are welcome for short-term placements or for a regular weekly slot. To volunteer you will need to fill out an application form and provide the names of two people who can give you a reference.

Prior to a placement offer we would carry out an interview to give you the opportunity to visit the school and discuss what possible options.


We take our responsibilities around safeguarding very seriously so all volunteers are carefully interviewed and selected to meet our students’ needs. You will also be required to apply for enhanced clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service which will be arranged through the school.

NB:- Unfortunately we are unable to accept relatives or siblings of current Critchill students or any young person under the age of 16.
