Year 7 Global Perspectives Programme

I am delighted to welcome our Year 7 students to the secondary school. In order to support our students with the transition from primary to secondary we have introduced a bespoke programme called Global Perspectives.  Global Perspectives is a unique, transformational programme designed to help our Year 7 students develop transferable skills such as critical thinking and problem solving. It also offers valuable opportunities to reinforce connections and skills across all Key Stage 3 subjects. The emphasis is on developing our students’ ability to think critically about a range of global issues where there is always more than one point of view.

In lessons students will study global topics that are relevant to them – for example, the environment, education and keeping healthy.

The course is organised into six main skill based 'strands':

  • Research
  • Analysis
  • Evaluation
  • Reflection
  • Collaboration
  • Communication.

The skills are taught through a wide range of topics using a personal, local and global perspective. 

Research tells us that the earlier learners start to develop and practise their skills, the greater the impact on their learning. Making a course such as Global Perspectives available to younger learners will develop and embed cross-curricular skills at an earlier age, supporting them in their studies, and providing them with an excellent foundation for success.

Please watch the above video and feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
