Pent Valley School’s Extended Day Programme was launched in September 2014 for all new Year 7 students. The aim behind the Extended Day Programme is to enable students to stay on at school until 5pm, in a supervised and constructive environment. Linked to the school’s Sports Academy status, the Extended Day Programme enables students the opportunity to try new, exciting sporting and creative opportunities within the local area.
Since September, students have taken golf lessons at Etchinghill Golf Club, developed their culinary skills through the Healthy Cooking Club, and received swimming lessons from our swimming instructors at Dover Leisure Centre.
This term the Year 7 students are taking part in a woodwork project where they are constructing a clock, with junior gym, wheelchair football, trampolining and level 3 Bikeability, which includes a trip to the mountain bike trails at Bedgebury Forest, also on offer.
This totally free of charge programme is available to all Year 7s currently at Pent Valley School. From September 2015 the Extended Day Programme will cater for our Year 8 students as well as all of our new Year 7 starters.
