On Thursday 4th September 2014, the Year 8 pupils worked together to identify and unlock their enterprise potential and were given the opportunity to meet and explore the roles of staff within their new school.
They also tackled difficult school issues such as bullying, graffiti and litter and came up with ways to deal with these problems. The pupils made a poster and a slogan for their final presentations, which were pitched before the “Dragons’ Den” – a team of budding entrepreneurs from Lower Sixth! These presentations were judged and prizes given for the best pitch. The Years 8s were ably assisted by the AS Level Business Studies pupils who willingly gave up their free periods.
At the end of the summer term on Thursday 18th June 2015, the Year 8 pupils were back in the Assembly Hall participating in the ‘Moving On’ seminar. The pupils started their session with an ice-breaker quiz on ‘Who do we know?’ which assessed their knowledge of various people’s roles within the school, such as ‘Who is the Head Boy?’ and ‘What is the Caretaker’s name?’
