Programme: Transition to Secondary School – Resilience Course
The transition to secondary school is an important time for schools and students. This unique course is designed to help prepare year 7 and 8 students in the transition by developing their self-esteem, resilience and determination in the face of adversity. It is purposefully run between November and March when weather may be more challenging, to encourage children to thrive in the natural environment.
We will support you and your student’s in discovering a new sense of confidence with purpose and value, supporting their physical and mental wellbeing to enable them to look forward to their time in secondary school education with an increased appetite for learning.
Should you require any specific Curriculum or learning outcomes specific to your school we are more than happy to adapt this course to meet your requirements.
Available November-March each year.
Transition - Focus minds with unique Teamwork activities to support students in making a positive contribution; look to continuously improve & develop on a deeper level; be more socially aware; increase their initiative & responsibility.
Resilience - We use the stunning coastline of North Wales natural environment during the Autumn months to effectively challenge, motivate and develop the student's resilience, confidence and self-esteem in a safe environment. Through encouragement, they become stronger physically and mentally.
Personal growth and self-awareness - Our course begins with a “Goal setting” session where we will look to understand and then encourage and support each students’ goals which we will review at the end of the course to understand if these goals have been achieved.
