Just before the end of lockdown, most of the school took part in our first Off-timetable Electives in which students and staff chose activities for half of the day that were designed to offer them engaging, challenging and enriching things to do – but also to break the routine of online learning and get a rest from screen-based activities.

The output was impressive – from sushi and curries to cakes and muffins; Spanish vocabulary monopoly; wonderful nature photography; a variety of impressive animations – and much, much more. The results of some of the students’ efforts and creations can be seen in the photos below.


“Activities ranged from designing a board game for primary schools that would keep the students active, to cooking challenges, community projects or the challenge of completing our very own Crystal Maze.”
