Wellbeing Wednesdays:
On Wednesday afternoons lessons finish early to allow our students to focus on their wellbeing. Students choose an activity to do for the term, such as basketball, band, table-tennis, professional styling, green space, dance, robotics etc.

Early Finish Fridays:
Those who have completed all their work for the week, and have been present and punctual to all their sessions earn the right to an early finish on Fridays.
