Extended Learning Days
‘Extended Learning Days’ (ELD) are organised throughout the academic year to enrich students' experiences. During these days the normal timetable for students is cancelled, and the whole day or week is given over to learning with a single focus. This may be ‘The Rainforest’, or it might be studying art by visiting galleries in London. It might be designed to develop effective teamwork amongst our students, or it may be to prepare students for interviews as they approach the end of year 11. Students may be coasteering in the waters of Wales, or lighting fires in Bedfordshire. Be assured that each day is enriching, and focused towards specific learning outcomes.
During the academic year 2016-17, the dates for these are:
ELD1 Monday, 8th November 2016
ELD2 Friday, 27th January 2017
ELD3 Friday, 10th March 2017
ELD4 Tuesday, 20th June 2017
Work experience for Y10s will take place during the summer term, 10th July – 14th July 2017
