To thrive in this ever-changing interconnected world, pupils must have the confidence to step outside of their comfort zone, try new things, embracing their pioneering spirit and unfamiliar ideas.
It is often when we are being exposed to challenges and new experiences that we learn most about ourselves, flourish as individuals and our place in the world.
During the Prep years in particular, pupils are primed to learn and adapt, and they respond particularly well to first-hand experiences.
Our Saturday School morning for Years 6, 7, and 8 has been re-launched as the Wycliffe Discovery Programme. This newly created programme is carefully structured into blocks, with each one challenging pupils to think, problem solve and collaborate.
Curated blocks include a three-week Kintsugi Art and Philosophy unit. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with a gold-dusted lacquer, centred around a philosophy that celebrates imperfections.
Year 8 learnt about the principles of flight, when a fully operational glider was brought onto campus, and pupils were able to ask MOD engineers about their experiences in the field of aviation.
The pupil body at Wycliffe has a thirst for adventure and an intellectual curiosity and, as you can see, the Discovery Programme aims to build on this, stretching and challenging pupils, allowing them to engage with new concepts and develop the skills they will need to be fully rounded global citizens of the future.
