Our next PSHE Day takes place on Wednesday 8th March 2017

Plan for the Day:

Year 7 will have a day of focussing on local government and considering what is positive about Andover, and what could make Andover better. We will be joined by representatives from TVBC.

Year 8 will be focussing on Finance, money management and banking,  by following a series of workshops across the day – including a workshop run by Lloyds.

Year 9 will focus on well being covering a range of issues such as the dangers of cannabis, smoking cigarettes and vaping, body image, radicalisation, forced marriages, and a road safety workshop.

Year 10 will focus on a range of activities across the day. This will include a presentation by the Teenage Cancer Trust, and then a carousel of workshops focussing on Democracy, USA politics influence on the UK, British values, social media awareness, and sexting.

Year 11 will focus on a range of activities across the day. They will start with a speaking and listening activity in English. This will be followed by a presentation by the Teenage Cancer Trust, and then a series of three workshops – Road safety with Hampshire Fire Service, Readiness for Life with the school nurse service, and exam stress and resilience with Andover Mind.

The day promises to be as successful as the last and we will share all that we have done with you after the event!

Year 9 Options Information Evening

The time has come for Year 9 students, along with their parents or carers, to make option choices for courses which will start in Year 10 in September 2017.  Some areas of the curriculum such as English, Mathematics and Science remain mandatory, but there is now an opportunity to pursue some subjects with a heightened focus. 

On Thursday 2nd March there is a Year 9 Options Information Evening from 4:15pm until 6:45pm.  There will be an opportunity to hear a presentation about the Options process, as well as meet staff representing each option subject.  We will also be issuing the Options Form at the event.

Option booklets will be sent home later today, or tomorrow. The deadline for submitting choices will be 20th March 2017.
