About Year 8 & 9 Activity Days
We recognise that by Key Stage 3, there is an emphasis on students learning to filter and sift information to help make decisions. The ‘First Steps’ report from the Confederation of British Industry concluded that “personal behaviours and attributes – sometimes termed character – play a critical role in personal effectiveness” and our many school activity challenges reflect this.
Bearing this in mind, our activity days encourage students to express their own ideas to their group, building their confidence to speak clearly and concisely in an informal setting, as well as asking questions of others before deciding on a course of action together. With a strong focus on analysing their own performance through extensive reviewing, participants learn to self-reflect and find ways of improving to further their potential, both individually and as a team.
