Form time is a dedicated 25-minute period at the start of each day that helps to guide the students through their personal development at the school. Every year group follows a timetable of activities with set tasks and resources which are delivered through their form tutor. Below is the topic timetable for each year group followed by a short description of each activity.
Each week there is a topic that the students are introduced to which is linked to the topic of the term (please see form time mapping). Students are given different resources (picture of the week, word of the week and debate question) to stimulate conversation and discussion. This is recorded in their knowledge organiser.
