RISE (Resilience, Innovation, Skills and Employability) is our unique way of welcoming students to The William Allitt School in Year 7. It is a combined subject programme of the Arts, Religious Education (RE), Citizenship, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) which includes Careers, and ICT and works to build the skills, knowledge and understanding in young people through a creative, challenging and fun thematic curriculum. Students will spend 7 hours of their school week with their RISE Tutors who will guide them through the programme.
We also love to celebrate achievement. At key points during the year we have local showcase events to allow the students to present to their parents, and the local community and media.
The RISE programme continues in Year 8 for 2 hours each week and then in Years 9, 10 and 11 with three hours over 2 weeks where RE, Citizenship and PSHE including Careers are taught. There is also a weekly activity at part of the Tutor Time activities, tutor mentoring and a variety of Theme days to add to our students overall learning in RISE.
At KS4 GCSE Citizenship, GCSE Business and GCSE Religious Education are offered as part of Enterprise options. These subjects build upon the RISE learning in KS3 for those that choose to work towards qualifications in the subjects.
