Raising aspirations military style

A group of our Year 9 pupils at Calderstones School have been working on a weekly basis with a UK military School.

The aim of the project is to raise each pupil’s self esteem and personal expectations.

The former soldiers have delivered challenging activities to enable the pupils to develop individual strengths such as confidence, leadership and team working expertise.

So far the pupils have engaged in classroom and practical activities, learnt numerous new skills and are thoroughly enjoying every minute!

Although early days, the impact of the work by the team is vast and the boys are eager to succeed in the challenges of the programme and already a noticeable improvement in their aspirations is apparent.

The pupils involved are extremely excited about a residential which will held in February, where they can put all their new skills to the test!
