Year 10 – Personal Development Autumn 2 2023

Personal Development Days – Week 2

December 14th, 15th, 18th and 19th. 

As you may be aware, at Logic Studio School our students participate in Personal Development Days at the end of each half term. The aim of these days is twofold: firstly to give our students the opportunity to use and develop the academic knowledge and skills they learn in the classroom in a practical environment; and secondly to undertake new activities and projects that challenge and inspire them to improve their employment skills, aspirations and career planning. 

The aim of this letter is to provide a general overview and reminder about the first of these days, with more specific year group and activity information contained overleaf.  

During Personal Development Days, we will often have changes to the timetable, including start and finish times and these are indicated where appropriate. For some students in Years 12 and 13, this may mean a slightly longer day than normal due to the nature of the activities.

Some of our activities may require movement offsite and where this is the case, this is also indicated.

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s involvement in these activities, please contact us at Logic as soon as possible and speak to myself or your child’s Achievement Coordinator. 

Yours sincerely,

John Cadogan

Vice Principal
