Learning Outside the Classroom at St. Sampson’s High School is a fantastic department that allows students to take part in a range of activities such as Student Leadership, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the Rights Respecting School Award and whole-school events such as the West Coast Challenge and Opportunities Week.
During our Summer Term, we organise Opportunities Week for every student to take part in activities that they would not normally be involved with. This is a great time to learn new skills, make new friends and try something new. From surfing to drawing, there is something for everyone. We can’t wait for the next Opps Week!
In previous academic years, we have had more than fifty students completing their Duke of Edinburgh Award at Bronze or Silver level. Each person thoroughly enjoys the different activities such as pitching tents, cooking on a trangia and developing their first-aid skills. Each year we complete several expeditions in and around the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
