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-related learning, 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. It is also to reward students for their hard work during the school year. To get a sense of what the week’s about, check out tweets from 2018 and 2019.

Year 7 will take part in a series of activities during the course of the week. The full itinerary will be confirmed in the Spring Term.

Year 8’s schedule of activities will be jam-packed and varied. It will be confirmed during the Spring Term 2020.

The week functions slightly differently for Year 9 students. In the Autumn Term, they will be invited to pick one activity which they will take part in throughout the week. Recent years have included: art & photography, architecture, code-breaking, computing, Duke of Edinburgh’s bronze award, media team, music production, sports week, and survival skills!

Year 12’s week will be confirmed in the Summer Term, but often focused on students’ next steps, with sessions about universities, apprenticeships and more!
