Explore your future: An opportunity to become familiar with a range of vocational courses and/or careers available locally, e.g. hair and beauty taster days, car maintenance workshop, college taster days, university taster days, police work, jewellery making, photography etc.
Expand your skills: A range of activities which have been designed to enable students to practise the skills of applying learning to real world contexts, e.g. leadership training and experience, work experience, promoting a band, volunteering and community work, organising events etc.
Extra-curricular: A large variety of activities to ‘challenge yourself’ to do something different. The content of the summer term Flexi-Day is focussed on a wide range of summer activities, from archery, wakeboarding, indoor skydiving, to gaming challenges. Many of our staff offer an activity which is of personal interest to them.
