This briefing will give you the information you need to discuss with your teenagers and to explore and encourage their participation Values in Action is the term we use for all the opportunities accessible to our students to help them to become the person they want to be.  We value our academic curriculum but there are other skills that students need to develop. The opportunities open to students are numerous and vary every year. Leadership takes many forms and is a fundamental skill that we develop in our young people. This Education Evening is also an opportunity for our students to share with you the opportunities they have had experienced and how they have developed their skills to become leaders
