Healthy Living - a workshop given by The Teenage Cancer Trust. This workshop was very popular last year, with practical advice on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle when the stresses of Year 11 take hold.
It is not our intention to be alarmist, but we would be failing in our duty of care if we did not cover these issues to raise awareness in our students.
MAD4Study - this is a session led by MAD4Life, which will focus on building skills and enabling students to cope better with the stress of GCSE examinations in Year 11.
It builds on the workshop which was given in Year 8 and students have found it an opportunity to learn practical techniques in an enjoyable and stress-free environment.
