Wimbledon School Partnerships Aspirations Day

By February 19, 2018News

Future Foundations’ delivered our Aspirations programme last week at King’s College School, a world-leading independent school in Wimbledon.  The training event was attended by selected Year 11 students from a variety of schools belonging to the Wimbledon School Partnership, who spent the day exploring how to boost their confidence and academic aspirations and achieve greater success in their upcoming GCSE’s.

The programme was course directed by Jason who was assisted by an experienced team of Future Foundations coaches; Andy , Louise, Amrit, Henderson, Jen and Brett.

The objectives of the Aspirations day were to:

  • Challenge students to take personal responsibility for success in their GCSEs and beyond through commitment and smart goal setting
  • Build students confidence in themselves, through recognising their own qualities
  • Raise students aspirations around their future options post year 11 with particular focus on Higher Education
  • Establish a lasting impact on student’s motivation and confidence
  • Provide a fun, interactive and motivational boost before exams to focus students on their prospects and the importance of aiming high

Future Foundations provided a varied programme delivered across the school site, including inspirational plenaries, experiential team tasks and reflection sessions throughout the day, all of which related back to the objectives of the Aspirations programme. The day was launched with a stimulating opening plenary which gave the students the incentive they needed for the rest of the day. This was delivered by Jason, Course Director, who themed this around ‘aiming high’.

Students then moved through a series of challenging workshops exploring  their strengths and building key skills in self-leadership, time management and SMART goal setting.

“This programme resulted in some amazing interaction and discoveries, all of  which was aided by a group of such engaged students and school staff.

In the final session of the day students took the time to reflect on the importance of time. This reflection was then put into practice in our ‘Time of your life elevator pitch’ activity. This allowed the students to communicate with their peers in a timed setting, helping to build their confidence in their own skills.”
