Dear Parents and Carers

This week we welcomed the Army into school. On Tuesday, 180 students from Years 7, 8 & 9 took part in a British Military Team Building and Self Development Course. The students took on a series of group challenges designed to reinforce positivity and a ‘can do attitude’. The activities helped them to speak to each other confidently whilst improving team performance and having fun.

It was great to see the students so engaged with the challenges they were set. We saw some fantastic collaborative working and team bonding taking place and I think these young people got a lot out of the experience. (more…)
