Challenger Sessions

One of our main drivers of our 'Building Character' work is our Challenger sessions.  Every student has these "innovative sessions" (Ofested, 2019)  as part of their timetable curriculum offer.  These take place once every two weeks.   Students from across all year groups select an activity in which they participate. Next academic year students will gain an AQA Unit Award for each of these Challenger lessons completed.
