Students in the Secondary Department take part in a number of enrichment activities on a Friday afternoon as part of their Secondary Curriculum offer. This enables the students to develop some of the key ‘soft skills’ that they will need after leaving schools. These range from developing teamwork, communication, problem solving and flexibility and negotiation. These are all skills that benefit students both across the curriculum and in their wider lives beyond school. The range of activities on offer various from term to term but essentially consists of Drama, football, trampolining, baking, art project, zumba, signing choir, hair and beauty, sensory activities, board games, gardening and allotment activities. Students also complete different Unit Award Scheme units relating to both the level they are working at and also the activity they are involved in.
