Stretch

Stretch projects help to develop students’ autonomy, oracy and love of learning. It is an important part of the curriculum. Each student explores an area of interest within a given theme and exhibits their work to peers, families and the community at the end of each cycle during stretch final day. 

During each 13 week cycle, students work independently to research, prepare and practise their presentation. Students have discreet lectures to support them through this process and can seek support from their advisor and belay partner. Students are expected to spend 90 minutes a week preparing their presentation.

Stretch topics vary from e.g. ‘cultural’ to a personal project on ‘aspiration’. They undertake four Stretch projects over year 7 and 8 culminating in the speaking and listening component of their English GCSE.

During stretch final day, we invite a panel of judges to score the finalists based on a number of stretch standards including the quality and depth of their research; the clarity and organisation of their presentation; and their ability to reflect on their learning and achievement.

#futuretermspanel Excellent viewpoints, especially around the need to transition from the language of deficit to a positive language of learning, and the need for culture over curriculum. Sadly at odds with the current government narrative.

Love Natalie Brookshaws final point that culture comes before curriculum. If we don't get the culture right then even the best curriculum won't work #FutureTermsPanel
