End of Term Enrichment
Dear parents and carers,
I write to inform you of the arrangements in place for the end of term.
Monday 18th July 2022 - Preparing for the future
All students will be in school taking part in Futures Workshops, built around careers, employability skills and preparation for life beyond Blacon High School.
Year 7 – Futures Workshops and a Healthy eating/Art workshop delivered by Mini-Makery.
Year 8 – Futures Workshops and a Drug Awareness workshop.
Year 9 – My Perfect University Challenge funded by Higher Horizons.
Year 10 – Aim a Little Higher workshops also funded by Higher Horizons.
Tuesday 19th July 2022 – Getting Active
Inflatable Assault Course and Activities within lessons.
Wednesday 20th July 2022 – Helping Others
All students will be involved in a whole school Sponsored Walk which will be 10km along the Greenway towards the river in Chester. This will be followed by a BBQ at school and outdoor games/activities. Students will be asked to gain sponsorship which will then be used to support learning outside the classroom opportunities in school and for the students’ selected charity, details of which will be revealed next week.
Thursday 21st July 2022 – Celebrating Achievement and Success
All students will be in school with tutors and in a final assembly, to reflect and celebrate the achievements of the last year. An extended break will be held mid-morning with brunch and students will then be able to collect some lunch at the end of the morning as they depart from school between 11.45 and 12.00 to finish for the summer.

Due to unforeseen circumstances in relation to the transport company, we have made the decision to hold our visits day next term, rather than at the end of this year. On Friday 21st October 2022, the day before we finish for half term, there will be a trip on offer for each year group, with time for families to pay for the trips over the first half term. Further details will be released for each year group before the end of term
I have received confirmation of funding this week to support students on free school meals over the summer period. A voucher of £60 will be issued to all students in receipt of free school meals at the end of term, in the usual way.
