Action! – The Enrichment Programme for Years 7 & 8

‘Action!’ is our interactive and investigative programme of enrichment activities for years 7 & 8 which takes place on Wednesday afternoons from 2.40pm – 3.40pm.

Action! offers the opportunity to experience a diverse and exciting range of new activities, run by professional outside providers or our own motivational students from the sixth form as part of the IB diploma CAS programme.  It sits alongside the innovative Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate for Year 7-9 students, where Action and service have always been shared values of our IB community.

Students are encouraged to participate in a different activity each term, therefore giving them the option of taking part in up to 12 different activities over the 2 years. The programme is designed to challenge the students to try an unfamiliar activity or as an extension to an existing interest.

Activities on offer include;

Sporting clubs such as Judo/Self Defence, Tennis, Trampolining, Yoga, Badminton, Table Tennis and a whole range of Dance classes.

Creative clubs such as Cake Decorating, Clay Modelling, Face Painting, Jewellery Making, Glass Painting and Pottery Painting.

Life skills such as learning Japanese, Cookery and First Aid.

General Interest clubs such as Bridge, Digital Photography, Chocolate Making, Calming Therapies and Amazing Animals.

My daughter found it very difficult to choose. It all looks very exciting and interesting!
Action is brilliant! My daughter continues to really enjoy it. We also think it is a great way to meet other children in Year 7/8.
I think this is an excellent programme and the diversity of choices is fantastic.
