Your PL (personal learning) group is where you will spend the first 20 minutes of each school day (08:40 – 09:00).

During PL time, important messages that you may need to receive for the rest of your day will be given out. There will also be a range of activities that all PL groups cover, as well as some activities bespoke to each age range.

All PL groups will take part in:

  • Independent study/homework
  • World news / current events – we believe it is important that our students are aware of, and understand their place in the world.
  • Assembly
  • Academy quiz

Depending on your year group, you will have some specific tasks that you undertake weekly too:

  • Year 11s will undertake subject specific intervention for their GCSE subjects.
  • Years 8 and 9 will have activities catered towards choosing and starting their GCSE choices.
  • Year 7 activities will be about settling in to school and stretching themselves as they move further into Key Stage 3.
