Welcome to Year 7

Students are allocated a Tutor Group with whom they will have most of their lessons.  This year all Year 7 students will be following the REAL LiFE Curriculum. The Real LiFE Curriculum is a new style of teaching and learning that is based on the latest global educational research and aims to equip our learners with the knowledge, skills and values they will need to thrive in the 21st century. It is designed to make learning relevant and more engaging by bringing topics to life, and by coaching students with the skills they need to take more control of their own learning so that they can really learn to make a positive difference not only to their own lives, but also to the world around them. Students are guided through the learning to ensure they build the knowledge and skills needed to succeed, and receive personalised coaching which enables them to refine and improve their work so that they achieve their personalised goals.
