Launched in September 2021 and named after the school’s founder, LEX is an exciting new initiative carefully designed to ensure that by the time they leave us, all our students have acquired the skills, knowledge and passions that will enable them to live rich and fulfilling lives. By restructuring our academic programme throughout the working week, we are now able to use Saturdays to provide opportunities across several key ‘pillars’ (The Great Outdoors, Arts, Creativity and Culture, Service and Leadership, Enterprise and Employability and Wellbeing) which will challenge and extend our pupils as well as exposing them to new ways of being, thinking and doing.
This unique and comprehensive personal development programme includes trips, lectures, expeditions and specialist coaching with a view to getting our pupils out of the classroom and preparing them for the challenges and possibilities of the real world! LEX runs for 16 compulsory Saturdays across the year and consists of core modules encompassing the strands outlined above. The remaining ‘FLEX’ Saturdays (around three per term) provide opportunities for students to opt to try new activities in specialist areas that could spark an interest or talent that we hope might then inspire and bring them joy throughout their lives. FLEX Saturdays are optional so also provide students with the choice to enjoy family time or to pursue other interests outside of school on those days should they wish.
