DofE Training 2024

DofE Logo
We have been busy for the last month preparing for this summers expeditions.  Staff have been out checking routes, we are so lucky to have such great countryside on our doorstep and the students will be walking through some beautiful spots.


They do need to be prepared for mud though, there is a lot of mud out there following the recent rain and flooding.


This weekend we have had all of our bronze and silver candidates together for their first training day.  They completed training on first aid, health and safety, navigation, food and set their group aims.


At lunchtime they discovered just how long it takes to boil water on a trangia!


It was a fantastic day and we can’t wait until after Easter when we will be continuing their training out in the countryside.

Wellbeing Ambassadors – Training for 2024

Our Wellbeing Ambassadors have been getting ready for Wellbeing 2024; lots of plans in the making to continue supporting our students.

Tea & Cake Event – Community Ambassdors

Some of our Sixth Form Community Ambassadors went along to the Festive Tea and Cake Event yesterday.

It was a lovely morning in which the students mingled with the visitors, chatted and sang along to Christmas songs.

The entertainment was provided by the Branston and District Ukulele Group.

Wellbeing Ambassadors – Introduction

Our new Wellbeing Ambassadors are now actively supporting our students throughout the academy.

The team is made up of Y13 students who have completed and passed specific training which allows them to work across the whole school.

They are trained to offer advice and practical strategies which builds resilience and confidence for students.

They are a valuable asset to our already proactive wellbeing approach in school.

Students can identify them by their yellow lanyards and they are able to approach them if they have any issues, they are happy to help.
