Personal Development Days

As part of our core curriculum offer students in Years 7-11 will experience 12 days during each academic year when the usual timetable is suspended. Each year group will undertake a different whole day experience designed to develop further their Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS), literacy and numeracy skills and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

These PD Days provide an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in learning activities for a whole day and covers themes that are not necessarily addressed in subject areas of the curriculum.
