The King's (The Cathedral) School


During Activities Week, Year 10 pupils experience a series of Workshops aimed at improving their health, self-esteem and e-safety.

Building on the Learning for Life programme, guidance, help and advice will be made available to students on how to cope with the enormous pressures imposed by their peers and society.  It will also allow students to learn more about some agencies which can help people, some of whom offer volunteering opportunities to older students.

Future Toolbox - 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. 

e-Safety workshop, led by The Breck Foundation - to increase awareness of personal safety when using social media, the internet and online gaming.

Plus, a workshop based on consent and healthy relationships, led by the Terrence Higgins Trust.

The remainder of the week is given over to Work Experience.
