Instead of normal lessons, Year 10 students at Marshland High School took part in a Flexible Learning Day (FLD), which took them out of their comfort zones.

The day was made up of lessons from The British Army, The Royal Air Force, Barclays Bank and the NHS Dental Service, as well as workshops on drugs, alcohol and sexual health.

When they were not outside completing obstacle courses and doing trust exercises, they were indoors receiving advice about managing their finances and important social issues and carrying out thought provoking challenges.

Paul Watson, head of PSHE, said: “I’ve spoken to the pupils and they have all said they had great fun and found the day really interesting.

“The feedback I’ve got from our guests has been really positive as well.

“They commented on how well behaved the pupils were and said they would like to help out again at the school in the future, which is very pleasing.
