Extra Curricular Opportunities
The department offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in field study visits. All students can attend the Castleton residential in Year 7 as well as visiting the local church. Each academic year we also arrange a number of full day and residential fieldwork visits. The aim of the department is to use the wider community and its members as an integral part of the curriculum. We also encourage visitors into school to enrich students’ learning experiences.
We use a range of assessment techniques across the department. Learning is assessed routinely in lessons as well as in more formal assessment settings. We feel this helps students to reflect on their learning and teachers to adapt their practice to support the progress of students. Books are marked on a 2-3 week cycle with detailed feedback being given on extended pieces of work and homework tasks. Students respond to feedback in green pen to help improve their learning. Homework is set as per the schools homework calendar with a range of tasks being set to support and challenge all learners.
