Senior students take part in interactive daily form time activities, to make sure they are always learning and feel part of the school community.
The 11-16 year-olds complete academic and wellbeing tasks, between 8.40 and 9am each morning, designed to challenge the mind, improve critical thinking and boost confidence.
Together, the form takes part in group discussions about current affairs, social and moral situations, personal academic achievements and goals and mental and physical health. Classmates also individually compete in English, maths and general knowledge quizzes.
Year nine form tutor and Head of Computer Science, Miss Tanya Newman, said: “Finding out more about yourself and others in a relaxed environment is a great way to start the day. The students really enjoy working as a part of a team and a little healthy competition between peers gives them the energy and drive they need to take on a full day of learning.”
“The sessions encourage Seniors to open their minds and engage with the wider world in a safe, supportive place.”
