Going 4 Great

Preparing students for further education and apprenticeships Going 4 Great facilitates them in building independent learning skills. This timetabled lesson provides our year 10 and year 11 students with the opportunity to take ownership, and in line with our 3 R’s responsibility for their learning. Each week students embark on a period of self-directed study.

This requires them to plan ahead thereby managing not only their work demands but also their time in a mature manner. As such, Going 4 Great gives students a bridge between being in school and entering into sixth form, college and apprenticeships where they will experience increased flexibility and independence in terms of the expectations placed on them. Hadi, year 11 saw a benefit of the lesson as being the chance to get homework done while having a teacher on hand and enabling him to revise at home.
