10 2 11 Challenge

At Dene Magna we recognise not only the need for academic learning, but for KS4 students to develop character qualities that will prepare them in every respect for life. Therefore as part of their transition into year 11, we work closely with parents with an inititive called '10|2|11' where students are given a set of challenges to complete (largely at home) to develop indepenence and confidence.

Please see below electronic versions of the student guide and parent/carer guide, which give full details of the initiative. Feedback from parents has been very positive as they recognise the need for young people to be prepared for the changes in year 11 and beyond

If you are a business and have been approached by a student for discounted travel, this is a genuine School initiative and parents are invited to support their son/daughter as they explore public transport. Please only agree to complimentary or discounted tickets with express permission of the parent(s)/carer(s) and if students can safely return home safely. Thank you for your support!
