Friday 14th February is a staff training day. However, several Year 11 & sixth form teachers have requested to teach key stage 4 & 5 lessons on that day to help students prepare for both GCSE's and 6th form up coming mocks on the 24th February. Attendance to these lessons is compulsory. Students should arrive 15 minutes before their lesson in their daily, professional attire. If students would like to remain on site during lunchtime, lunch will be provided free of charge. Students must sign in and out at reception.
Year 7 Young Enterprise Event
Last week It was Year 7's turn to take on the Young Enterprise Programme - where professionals from the business world educate our students about the world of work and what skills are needed for them!
We kicked off with problem solving activities to help drive independence and teamwork, then we took part in a character quiz - identifying our professional personalities.
Later on in the day we took to our groups and came up with a small business idea. This involved creating a marketing plan from scratch, identifying various needs including branding, logos, strap lines, campaign drives and event ideas. We also looked at the financial aspects of business ownership including managing budgets and costing.
As well as Young Enterprise themselves we would like to thank all the volunteers including The Post Office, HSBC and the world of Engineering and Construction.... you were amazing!
