On Friday 24 November, our Senior School students participated in our inaugural annual PSHE Day. Pupils from Year 7 upwards were taken off timetable, replacing usual lessons with valuable, expert-led sessions to explore topics that aren’t always covered by the curriculum. Creating a safe space for learning and discussion is vital for the holistic development of our students, which is why PSHE plays a crucial role in our educational approach here at Northampton High.
Over the course of the day, we were thrilled to welcome lots of professionals into school to share their expertise on a variety of subjects. Our guests delivered speeches and bespoke workshops on mental health, social media, finance and careers – to name just a few of the important topics discussed. We would like to thank our wonderful visitors for their invaluable contributions to this event. The day was a true success thanks to their excellent sessions and it was fabulous to see each year group enthusiastic and involved.
This dedicated event allowed students to focus entirely on the enriching activities in front of them and we were pleased to receive extremely positive feedback from them at the end of the day. Whilst PSHE is not always pupils’ favourite subject, it was wonderful to hear that the programme of events had been engaging and enjoyable for all!
A huge thank you must go to Mr Pietropaoli for organising such a brilliant day, bursting with variety and opportunities for learning! We cannot wait for this special event again next year!
