We will be holding a week of assemblies dedicated to options in the Sixth Form for Year 11 students during the week of Monday 30th October - Friday 3rd November
Taster Day will give Year 11 the opportunity to live life as a Sixth Form student for the day and also the chance to sample taster lessons in a variety of subjects. It will be held on Thursday 30th November 2017 8.55-3.25. It is non uniform for those taking part and Year 11 lessons will run as normal for those who are not participating.
In 1989, the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme recommended that 11 July be observed by the international community as World Population Day, a day to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues. This year's theme is “Family Planning: Empowering People, Developing Nations.”
Yet around the world, some 214 million women in developing countries who want to avoid pregnancy are not using safe and effective family planning methods, for reasons ranging from lack of access to information or services to lack of support from their partners or communities. Many of those with an unmet demand for contraceptives live in the poorest countries on earth.
Investments in making family planning available also yields economic and other gains that can propel development forward.
National School Sport Week (NSSW) is a huge celebration of everything that is great about PE and school sport, and we invite all schools across the United Kingdom to register to take part and #celebratePE.

National School Sport Week started in 2008, and last year saw over 5,000 schools and 1.8 million pupils take part! Want to find out more about what to expect, or pick up some ideas for 2017? Check out our Storify from last year's event.

Walk to school week 15-19 May 2017
Join thousands of children across the country celebrating the benefits walking brings.
We know that walking to school makes children feel healthier and happier, while reducing congestion and pollution outside the school gates. Yet less than half of primary school children currently walk to school.
We want to reverse this decline and see every child that can, walk to school.
Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem. This Mental Health Awareness Week, we are going to look at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, we will seek to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health.
Every week at least one child under five is killed because of an accident, with disadvantaged children most at risk.
Yet it doesn't have to be like this.
Family Safety Week 2017 focuses on protecting some of the most vulnerable members of our community — babies, toddlers and children under five.

24 April 2017 – On World Malaria Day, WHO is calling for closing gaps in coverage of lifesaving malaria prevention tools. While these tools have played a pivotal role in reducing malaria cases and deaths, they are still not available to many who need them. An estimated 43% of people at risk of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to an insecticide-treated net or indoor residual spraying of insecticides.
