In addition to the above, each year pupils are encouraged to take part in themed days/weeks which have a particular focus on one aspect of the curriculum. Regular features in the academic calendar include Science Week and Languages Week, where pupils get to immerse themselves in related activities that are a bit out of the ordinary and hope to offer different ways of learning alongside a bit of fun!
Whenever possible, pupils are keen to support important causes and take enjoyment out of organising and taking part in regular fundraising and activities to raise awareness. Alongside the more high-profile Children in Need and Red Nose Days, pupils have also run Macmillan Coffee mornings, wear your pyjamas to school days in aid of Papyrus, Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and made donations to local community larders. Pupils are always invited to put forward their fundraising suggestions and ideas to be discussed at the Pupil Forum.
