Our calendar is building with an exciting and varied set of student- centred experiences, which will:

enrich and enhance our holistic, Learn To Thrive curriculum

support acquisition and development of our Abbot’s Way Skill Sets

encourage our students to ‘dare to learn’

encourage enquiry, exploration and and discovery

'Venture' programme will launch with our Welcome Days, which will provide a vibrant, settling induction for our students across the first two days of term - see ‘Parents’ - ‘Calendar’

Curriculum Venture Days will take place on regular Fridays throughout each term, taking learning in a particular subject area ‘whole school’ and engaging students in multisensory activities to embed knowledge and provide essential memory hooks.

The first one in the diary is 'Jeans for Genes' and will take place on Friday 18th September as part of the Wider World strand of our 'Learning for Life pastoral programme.  Such days will raise awareness of charities and causes nationally and internationally.

‘Brain Health’ as part of the Wellbeing strand of our 'Learning For Life' pastoral curriculum, will take place on Friday 23rd October.

Venture Camps are being planned for the coming year for both our learning chapters, Spirit and Flair. Camps will be on site or local to Abbot's Way, and provide an exciting opportunity for independence, challenge and self-discovery.  

This strand of Venture will prepare students for Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award scheme which will commence in Year 9.  Duke of  Edinburgh is proven to develop and enhance social skills and those which sit within our key skill sets
