​​Form Time Resources

 

Each week our Activities Co-ordinator, Ms Watts, creates stimulating and informative activities to be used during Form Time to help expand students' social, moral, spiritual and cultural outlook. The resources are intended to promote emotional well-being. Form Time Activities also take into account important current affairs and how they impact upon students' lives and in so doing enabling students to make more informed decisions and to foster an inclusive environment where all opinions are valued.       

Tutor groups will also take part in quizzes and games; working in groups not only facilitates learning but encourages group cohesion.
