A Day in the Life of Sheraton Heathrow

A Day in the Life of Sheraton Heathrow

Year 11 spent an enjoyable day with the staff at the Sheraton Heathrow. All at Carwarden House would like to thank them for their warm welcome and for a very informative day. 

In January Year 11 students visited the Sheraton Hotel at Heathrow as part of their work related learning programme.  These visits are designed to give the students an insight into different working environments, provide an understanding of health and safety and look at a wide variety of jobs that may be of interest to them when they leave education.  The students had an amazing day and were firmly welcomed into the Sheraton family.  The planned day allowed the students to experience independent living and how they would conduct themselves in a hotel situation as may potentially happen in the future.    

     

 

They were taken on a treasure hunt where they were given a room key; using a map they independently found the room, searched for clues and solved them for prizes.  Clues such as "Find something to wash your hair with" led to the students being involved in cracking the code to open the safe, making a bed, setting out the tea facilities and making a telephone call to the switchboard.  The final clue led them to the presidential suite, navigating their way to the room with the aid of a map of the hotel. They were then given chefs hats and with these they were given the opportunity to go the food and beverage area where they were shown the kitchen and restaurant culminating in the students making their own tasty stone-baked pizzas for their lunch, cooked in the authentic pizza oven.  The students were excited from start to finish and thoroughly enjoyed their luxury hotel experience.
