Throughout each school year, our students have the opportunity to experience themed drop-down days with a variety of foci: all building important knowledge and skills such as confidence and resilience.
Our first drop down day involves the whole of Year 7 going on a day trip to the Kingswood Activity Centre in October. Students complete physical and problem-solving challenges whilst building relationships with their peers and teachers.
During 2021-22, Year 7 and 9 students take part in four RE drop down days with Y9 also having three days for PSHE as well. Examples of the style/content of these days are shown below:
|Year Group||Subject||Focus||Core Value Link||Format of the day|
|7||RE||Tolerance and anti-discrimination||Respect||One teacher with each form all day, working through information and activities which involve discussion, creativity and competition.|
|9||PSHE||Consent, healthy relationships and grooming||Respect||
