Work Experience

Work Experience at Parayhouse School

Finding meaningful work experience for our Y11 students was never a simple task, BUT we found THE perfect solution for our students - Foxes Hotel in Minehead, Somerset!

Foxes Hotel is the UK's only fully operating training hotel for young people with learning disabilities, and is an amazing establishment which offers its students training with a very real possibility of obtaining work in the service industry in the future.

Our students undertake 3 full days of service industry work experience – from working in the kitchens to serving drinks and cleaning rooms. Working 6 hour shifts and living in at the hotel is a real introduction to the rigors and responsibilities of work!

Students are supported by the Foxes staff and our own staff who travel with them, and feedback is always positive, from students and staff.
