In the summer term, there will be a block of 3 ACE Days, 10th - 12th July 2018. The majority of activities offered will last for the three days. Students will stay with the same staff and group giving them the opportunity to become fully involved in an activity.  It provides a safe, structured opportunity where students can enjoy new experiences and gain new skills. The week will give students the chance to be active, to participate, take on responsibility and show maturity. It is a time to have new experiences that will make students more aware of what they can do in the future.

Activities will either be based on site, involve a trip on one or more days or could involve a residential. Each opportunity will offer an exciting learning experience, for example, History trips to Vietnam or Berlin, organising a sports tournament or participating in a dance workshop.
