Tutorial Programme

Year 7-9

Year 7-9 are focusing on the Relationships, Health and Sex education framework during their weekly Morals and Ethics lesson. 

Students will spend one session a week on Service Learning, as part of the IB MYP curriculum.  Students focus on an overarching theme during the lessons which addresses both local and global issues. Students then have to complete either a direct or indirect service to benefit the local/global community.

Each module students focus on a different theme. 

Students receive 4-5 lessons on content and then spend time creating a piece of work to reflect what they have learnt and how it can positively impact a local/global community. 

Students have freedom to create a piece of work in anyway they see fit and will have the most impact on the community. 

Work of a high quality will be shared with the community and therefore direct action.

What is the purpose?

  • Helps students develop a stronger sense of community 
  • Gives students the knowledge and skills to be responsible citizens and develop empathy 
  • Gives students the opportunity to engage in different social and cultural groups  
  • Feeds into the community project in Year 9 and begins to develop necessary skills

Key Points

  • Lessons needs to be posted on your forms google classroom
  • Students should be encouraged to complete work on their devices and hand in work on the classroom. 
  • Student should be awarded graduation stars for their work 
  • Any work of outstanding quality should be referred to Lucy Hawkins
