Students attend one assembly per week with their year group. This is a chance for Heads of Year to address the year group as a whole, sharing experiences, rewards and successes of students within the group.
Our assembly calendar is mapped out for the year and coincides with major national and international events such as International Human Rights Day, International Women’s Day, Remembrance Sunday as well as some of the charitable events such as Children in Need. We also use assembly time to celebrate successes within our school and our House Leaders will highlight the House in the lead and what activities the House students have been involved in. Many departments will also celebrate successes and demonstrate the excellent learning activities the students have experienced. Assemblies are also a time for us all to reflect on certain issues such as anti-bullying, mental health awareness and protection from cybercrime and so assemblies have a moral purpose to enrich our students and keep them safe.
