Being at secondary school can be a difficult transition for students; meeting large groups of new people and coping with higher expectations of study. Our range of secondary school activity days are the perfect way of helping students break the ice, work together and learn valuable skills which help them later in life.
Our specially designed school activity days tie into many of the national curriculum key skills across a range of subjects, from PE to science. By setting high expectations and a range of deliberately ambitious tasks, participants are encouraged to “think outside the box” and use those all-important English skills to communicate their thoughts and ideas clearly to their peers.
Skills such as communication, teamwork and application have been found to be as important as academic ability in predicting future earnings, according to the Demos ‘Forgotten Half’ report. By getting students to consider how they can best work together to solve challenges and review the consequences in our activity days, their learning is much more effective and long lasting.
Each of our activity days are chosen with this mindset in consideration. Not only do we bring all that the students need for a great activity day to locations all over the country, but we make sure that education and skill building play a key part of the experience.
Instead of having to travel long distances to experience these levels of team building activities, WiseUp bring the experience to you. We provide everything you need to ensure that organising activities is easy, and caters to different group sizes, ages, and any other needs you may have.
We offer a huge range of options for secondary school students, including: competitive, team-focused and athletic based activities. All are provided in a safe, educational and fun environment, with the guidance of our friendly team.
Because students develop so much during their secondary school years, we split our activities by year group.
Years 7 transition activity days are perfect for new students who are just beginning their secondary school education. Our activities for this group are perfect to help students from all backgrounds and skill-sets to work together and bond as a team.
We also offer years 8 and 9 activities and years 10 and 11 activity days which offer the best degree of challenge and flexibility for students in those age groups. With multiple levels of difficulty in our events and with such a wide range available, there is always something for every student to enjoy.
