Our Character Days are designed to develop students' cultural capital through activities, experiences and excursions that complement the academic curriculum and foster the development of character.
Cultural capital can be defined as the skills and knowledge which our students can draw on to give them an advantage in social life.
There will be six Character Days across the academic year involving every year of the school (primary, secondary and sixth form). The normal timetable is suspended so that students can participate in a range of engaging, enriching and educational activities, such as workshops, competitions and visits.
These can focus on topics or areas such as:
- International life
- Oracy and languages
- Careers and looking to the future
