A Wonderful Day of PSHE!

Jul 4, 2024

A Wonderful Day of PSHE!

On Thursday the whole school diverged from their normal timetable in a whole school PSHE drop-down day with engaging activities for all!

The day brought a mixed programme of events delivered by both school staff and external visitors, all centred around student development and wellbeing responsive to student need.

Year 7 students enjoyed team working and art therapy workshops, producing some beautiful decorated orbs. Part of their day saw pastoral walks, and they enjoyed drama workshops and a fashion design workshop with visiting practitioner Kirsty Doyle.

Year 8 students got the chance to burn off some energy dancing, and move in a far more controlled way picking up some vital life skills in self defence with visitors MMA Defence. The afternoon brought workshops about relationship with other students delivered by Natalie Vaughn from AIMS.

The day for Year 9 was based around visiting group 'The Cells Project', an organisation dedicated to showing young people the consequences of crime and the realities of criminal life. The team delivered five workshops: 'Prison and life after prison - a girl's view', 'Gun, gang and knife crime', 'Family and victim perspective', 'Drugs and alcohol' and 'Joint enterprise and exploitative relationships'.

Year 10 students saw some great work in Careers, alongside more relaxing activities including baking and nature walks. 

Throughout the day students across all years cast their votes in our mock election, with Year 12 students casting their votes before they left for an off site visit to Wrexham University.

Thank you to all of our students for engaging with the day's activities so well, and to our staff and visitors for delivering a fantastic day.
