Healthy Living and More - Academy Day, March 2018

Academy day march 2018 4Once a term we hold an Academy Day, when 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

Our second Academy Day took place on Wednesday 21 March 2018. Here's a taste of what happened.

Year 7 – Healthy Living workshops, including one with athlete Szandra Szogedi (Olympic Judoka). "My favourite part of the day was the fitness field because everybody used co-operation. They used good skills and we all enjoyed it." "I enjoyed meeting the sport champion and seeing her Olympic medals."

Year 8 – Students visited Tate Modern. "I enjoyed going on the swings [art installation] in the art gallery because they were really fun.  I also enjoyed seeing all the cool artwork."

Year 9 – Police Education Day, including workshops on internet safety, child sexual exploitation, knives, gangs and drugs. These workshops were delivered by our Community Officer and his team from the Metropolitan Police. "I enjoyed learning about weapons with experienced officers.  Learning about their personal experiences as police officers was really interesting." "‘ I enjoyed learning how to protect yourself from going in the wrong direction to prevent bad things from happening to your family."

Year 10 – Natural History Museum Trip. Students enjoyed a walking tour of the museum and participated in a Darwin’s Theory of Evolution workshop. This is closely linked to the study of one of their key texts at English GCSE, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.  

Year 11 – Revision Conference. Students had a personalised timetable to following including special booster sessions for the subjects in which they need most support.
