Throughout each school year, our students have the opportunity to experience themed dropdown days with a variety of foci: all building important skills such as confidence and resilience.
Our first drop down day involves the whole of Year 7 being invited 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.
Later in the year, Year 8 students attend the Doncaster College Roadshow where they are treated to a range of fully-interactive activities, designed to showcase post-16 options at the University Centre. Stalls include ‘have-a-go’ wood stain and marbling, time-trial wall building, virtual welding and animal care! The roadshow signifies the start of the GCSE Pathways process for our Year 8 students, which includes an open evening, assemblies, ‘finding out weeks’ and other external presentations.
