Focus Days

Focus days are an excellent opportunity to enhance and enrich our curriculum. These days provide an opportunity to run trips, take time out of our regular lessons to delve in to a current event or run a themed day across all subject areas. Each year we have three focus days, the content of these is decided at the start of the year.

Focus Days themes have been around: 

  • Kindness Day. Kindness is a character trait we promote and value highly. All year groups took part in sessions promoting kindness to yourself and others, what is a charity? debating sessions, sessions involved looking at how to be kindness to the environment, ourselves and each other.
  • Employability. During National Apprenticeship week students have looked at what is means to be employable and developed key skills for employability such as team work, resilience, communication skills. Throughout the day students in year 10 enjoyed the opportunity to meet local employers. 
  • Wellbeing Day. A day focussed on wellbeing and strategies to develop good wellbeing and mental health. The wellbeing crew have delivered sessions around using sport, art and music as strategies to use. 

These days focus around our School Values of Pride, Respect, Kindness, Honesty and Ambition
