How the day works?

The students are catapulted into the future where a new planet has been discovered with a very similar climate to Earth.  They are tasked with setting up a new society and infrastructure in which to live and thrive.  They will look at different careers and consider their contribution within society, debate laws, learn about new technologies and sustainability as well as design a new city.

Aimed to appeal to students across a broad curriculum there will be 3 new workshops launched this year:

  • Explore 
  • Design
  • Thrive

This workshop will engage students across the year group with different interests and who are studying the full range of subjects.  It is their problem solving and creativity that will determine their future.  They will work in teams, debate and decide on choices using a range of transferable employability skills.  At the same time they will be challenged to think about the careers that will be important within their new world and the skills that each will require to be successful.
