Farringtons commitment to providing a holistic all-round education, with an emphasis on learning both within and beyond the classroom, is a central aspect of the school’s aims and objectives. As such the co-curriculum plays a key role both in terms of the pupils’ experiences at school, and in their personal development, our activities programme: Floreat, meaning “to thrive” continues to prove its value.
The Floreat programme is delivered within the existing structure of the normally timetabled school day and offers challenge, enrichment, and diversity for all students in Years 7-12.
Floreat seeks to develop students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural skills, boosting young peoples’ ability to succeed in education, work and society. By trying a variety of new activities from Archery to Mindfulness, from Podcasting to Japanese Culture, it is expected that students will develop greater self- confidence, leadership skills and the joy of discovering new things.
Floreat provides extended learning opportunities, giving students the chance to study concepts with greater depth, breadth and complexity, whilst also helping students to pursue their own areas of interest and develop their many strengths, offering over 50 different activities across the whole Floreat programme. As part of our commitment to wellbeing and forming part of the school’s response to the effects of Covid, you will find in the pages of the booklet specific details of the diverse and inspiring activities for all ages and interests.
