Challenge Week

This term, students had to opportunity to win quadruple apps points all week! They were set challenges in their classes in order to stretch them to learn something completely new and out of their comfort zone.

This included a huge range of hands-on activities, from preparing the infrastructure of game design in Computing to working with acrylic for the first time in Design & Technology. In Catering, students were set a technical challenge in which they had to make a design with gelatine, and Year 7s were truly stretched with some GCSE-grade product analysis. Sixth Form was also involved with Year 13 Law students holding a mock trial which enabled them to put into practice all that they had learnt so far.

Students tackled every challenge with enthusiasm and patience, and learnt so many new skills as well as earning a record number of apps points.
