Applied Learning Afternoon takes place on Wednesday afternoons from 2.20pm until 3.00pm. It was created to allow our students to experience different styles of learning; sessions are mainly delivered by external providers and allow students to access a diverse range of activities; these include sporting activities, such as tennis, yoga, archery and multi sports, creative activities to include floristry, jewellery making, photography and textiles and also activities for personal development including martial arts, first aid training and debating.

Each term your daughter will be given a sheet detailing the available activities and she will need to sign up for the two activities she is most interested in.  All of the Applied Learning information will be displayed in the reception area and a text will be sent to parents to confirm your daughter’s place on one of her chosen activities.

Please see below the Applied Learning activities for this year.

If you have any questions please contact e.machin@lordswoodtrust.co.uk
