During Activities Week, our students get the opportunity to explore experiences outside of the traditional curriculum and it is a fabulous week that students really enjoy.
This year, our Year 7 students went camping in the lovely weather to Walesby where they partook in a range of outdoor activities. In school, Year 7 students became CSI Investigators as they used scientific forensic methods to solve the murder of Miss Lees.
The Year 8 students went to Colomendy where they too embarked upon outdoor pursuits. In school, Year 8 looked to Rio for a
Creative Arts project where students chose Dance, Art, Music or Catering. Their fantastic work was presented to some Year 6 students who were invited to come and watch the show.
Year 9 did some fantastic charitable work for the Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of Patric Wilson. This continued with the football themed non-uniform day on Friday 8th July when students fund-raised. Year 9 also played the Stock Markets during the week trying to make as much money they could as a team.
Year 10 experienced a road safety day where the emergency services recreated a car crash scene on the school site. The students
saw how the emergency services work together to help all the people involved but they also heard from speakers who have been affected by car accidents. Year 10 also looked to the future with visits to colleges for taster days and a visit to Chester University. The week culminated in a visit to Alton Towers for Years 9 and 10.
A lot of organisation goes into organising this week and the students thoroughly enjoyed the experience
