Tutor Time:

Additionally, every student has a 25 minutes tutor time session on a daily basis which addresses a series of themes connected to our set tutor time programme, our assembly programme, and our Focus Week programme.

PHSE & Focus Weeks:

Furthermore, every student receives PHSE provision through Focus Weeks, tutor times and focused Drop-Down sessions which are mapped out throughout the school year. As well as covering PHSE, the sessions included RE, SMSC, British Values, Careers, etc.

KS4 Enrichment:

The school runs targeted exam boosters and revision sessions throughout the year which can be either voluntary or directed depending on the progression of the individual student.

Furthermore, we run a wide range of extra-curricular activities – including sports, performing arts, homework clubs and subject area clubs – throughout the school year.

The school-run sessions run alongside a series of externally provided sessions which come at a charge for students

These are in addition to more formal activities including sports team matches and school shows and performances.
