What is Stopping You From Learning?



In response to the new P.L.T.S., Holly Lodge School asked a cross section of its pupils to create a short film, to be shown to their teachers, featuring the girls discussing their attitudes to education, focusing on which skills they felt they needed to thrive in and after school, in the 21st century.

We worked intensively with three groups from year, 7, 8, 9 and 12 to develop responses to this question.

The finished DVD, which mostly consisted of interviews and discussions, was very well received by staff.

Above is one of the creative activities that the young people took ownership of, including organizing the filming of the shot. The young people were asked to think about the gaps between what young people say when talking to adults about their educational needs, and what they really think and feel.
