The final year is a preparation for life after The Gleddings. DESTINATION SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS (11+ for local Grammar Schools, Independent Grammar School Entrance Examinations and Common Entrance) are a priority but so are the LIFE SKILLS of team working, communication, computing, problem solving and care of others. The year ends with a FIT FOR LIFE programme which includes problem solving, enterprise skills, managing money, personal presentation, PowerPoint, public speaking, citizenship, the law and the legal system, the British constitution, outdoor pursuits, being healthy and safe, DIY, feed yourself, basic sewing AND A SLIDE DOWN THE BANNISTER (well, they have waited for 8 years to do it!) Mrs Chapman is our Teacher Leader and Mr O’Rourke is our Pastoral Leader. To see our work please click here
