Super Learning at Hyndburn Academy

Super Learning at Hyndburn Academy

Published on : 11 December 2018 / Categories: General

United Learning’s Hyndburn Academy took a day off from the usual lessons for a day of ‘super learning’ on Wednesday 5th December.

Running for the first time at the Rishton based school, the aim of the day was to give students the opportunity to explore topics that they wouldn’t normally look at, developing new skills in the process.

One topic explored by Year 8 was the school’s role within the community, with a group of students paying a visit to a local residential home, whilst Year 7 explored different aspects of keeping safe, including road and on-line safety.

The importance of acceptance was the focus for Year 9, with Year 10 looking at social issues including the dangers of drugs and Year 11 focusing on careers.

Commented Executive Principal Andy O’Brien said:

“Our aim is to hold a ‘super learning day’ at the school every half term, taking students outside their normal environment and challenging them to look at new topics and develop new ways of learning.”
