Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Life Day

 

Our Life Day programme is a vibrant addition to the curriculum which engages students in workshops, lectures, trips and visits.  This programme is currently paused due to COVID regulations but we are reviewing this in response to ongoing guidance from the Department for Education and we will resume the programme when it is safe to do so.

A unique aspect of learning at Hadley is Life Day. Students at Hadley can expect a wide range of varied activities over the course of the year.

The students' learning experience on Life Day is broad, holistic and exciting involving theme days, trips, external visitors and external visitors and interactive student led activities.

Students who actively participate receive a certificate at the end of the day recognising their achievement. Students who attend every session and participate fully receive an end of term Life Day Certificate of Achievement.
