In Year 7, students take a Cross-Curricular Studies course. They work in mixed ability groups and take part in a series of cross-curricular projects which are designed to develop their thinking and learning skills, improve teamwork and problem solving, practice speaking and listening and use literacy and numeracy skills in situations outside the English and Maths classrooms.
The course involves trips out, last year students visited a Medieval Village, London and spent 3 days on a residential adventure trip, and days when we invite specialist speakers into school. The course also regularly includes aspects of citizenship, personal and social development and explores our culture and society in the context of global issues.
During the course, students are assessed on aspects of their E.Q.
E.Q. is a measure of emotional intelligence, it reflects our ability to problem solve, our empathy and awareness of ourselves and others, and our resilience when faced with new or difficult situations. This emotional development is one of the key factors underpinning academic success in today’s rapidly changing world and we are very proud of the course which we have created especially for William Edwards students.
