    Work Experience at The Ritz

    Two West Hatch High School students have recounted their work experience placement with a different - after enjoying a two-week stint at The Ritz Hotel in London.

    Taking on the occasional role of bell boys, Danny Ballard and Red Walker undertook various roles, including carrying guests’ luggage and meeting with clients.

    Year 11 student Danny said: “I did many things during the two weeks such as going on jobs in central London and carrying out tasks in the hotel.

    “The Ritz is such a nice hotel and has a lovely team. I give special thanks to Michael De Cozar (head concierge) for such an experience and taking care of me.”

    Year 11 student Red Walker spent time working alongside the head concierge shadowing him at meetings.

    Red added: “I was asked to perform a number of duties from posting letters to rooms to ordering expensive cakes, and the most important job - helping people with their luggage!”

    He added: “I enjoyed my time at The Ritz. The staff were very caring.”
