All students in Years 7 – 10 (ages 11 – 15) will take part in project based learning as part of our innovative ‘Day 10’ curriculum. This involves students having a collapsed timetable from 11.30am to 3.40pm once every two weeks to allow them to take part in meaningful projects and off-site trips that will push them beyond the current National Curriculum and develop their sense of social responsibility.
Every two weeks each year group will be split into three groups. One group will take part in an off-site visit, one group will take part in a Project Based Learning activity and one group will take part in a community project. These groups will rotate throughout the year so every child will have the same opportunities to be involved in different projects.
Day 10 will allow your child to experience at least four off-site trips throughout London, take part in projects coordinated with external businesses and universities and to participate in projects that will help benefit the local community.
Day 10 will take place on the following days for each year group starting in 2019-20:
Year 7 – Tuesday Week A Year 8 – Tuesday Week B
Year 9 – Friday Week A Year 10 – Friday Week B
Students on school trips must bring their zip card and packed lunch to school unless they are eligible for free school meals, in which case the school will provide lunch. Students will be informed in advance if they are due to attend a trip.
Some students doing community projects and project based learning may be required to go off-site; if this is the case they will also need to bring a zip card and packed lunch and the school will notify parents two days before via text.
One of the organisations we work with are RESTORE THE MUSIC UK, a registered charity which seeks to reinstate access to music for every child in primary and secondary schools across London.
