• The 'Play in a Day' activity for Year 7 last year saw students take part in an immersive theatre experience, to uncover a conspiracy.
  • One popular Year 8 activity last year was the Structural Challenge - using engineering skills to build a load-bearing bridge out of only paper and tape!
  • Students on the Year 9 Life Skills pathway learned important skills for later in life, like cooking.
  • Year 9 'Investigating the Human Body' students learned so much about our inner workings - including how to take blood from a plastic arm.
  • Year 12 took part in Sixth Form Futures Week last year - preparing themselves for their next steps once they leave school.

Each year, we organise a Wider Learning Week towards the end of the Summer Term, for students in Years 7-9 and 12. Year 10 will be taking part in their work experience, while Years 11 and 13 will have completed their studies and left school.

Wider Learning Week provides enriching learning experiences in familiar and new contexts. Activities will challenge students and promote a wider understanding and independence, as well as developing their key skills, and allowing them to engage in wider learning. To get a sense of what the week’s about, check out all our posts on X from 2022-23, including a student takeover!

More details will follow soon.
