In September 2018, we launched the Year 7 Community Lunch with our new intake, during which all of our Year 7 students sit together with a selection of upper school prefects, their tutors and other staff to enjoy their lunch in two large communal areas. The initiative was borne from a desire to bring together the school community, with staff and older students role modelling the social skills required for sitting calmly and respectfully, eating lunch and making conversation.
During Year 7 Community Lunch, a Values programme is delivered, encompassing sessions on all aspects of Values and incorporating presentations from tutors, senior staff and subject experts (both internal and external) and from Year 7 students representing their tutor groups. There are also two sessions per week for students to discuss and debate the Values topics that they are learning about.
