SECONDARY School Activity Days

SSG have a unique range of innovative activity days specially designed to be fully inclusive to secondary aged children. Each activity day has three key elements which make them incredibly exciting and rewarding experiences unlike any others available.

What Makes SSG School Activity days Exciting & Rewarding?

  • All activity days have a foundation context which runs through as a theme for the whole day providing relevance to the day for those participating, as well as friendly competition between groups.
  • Every activity is fun and inclusive using a mixture of technically specific skills and ‘character education’ outcomes attached to support in personal development.
  • A series of challenges which requires participants to be communicative, collaborative and cooperative within their groups to succeed as a team.

School Activity Days FAQ

Activity from the ‘set options’ can cater for between 50 and 100 pupils, based maximum group sizes if twenty pupils and minimum group sizes of ten.

Activity days for 100+ pupils can be booked and we will design a bespoke package day based around one or more of the ‘set option’ activity days.

SSG apply a rotational format to each style of activity day ensuring all the pupils get the same opportunities to experience all of the activities throughout the day. Each activity day includes five specially designed activity challenges, where participants get scores for their skills and their attitudes, ensuring to ‘be the best’ also means to ‘be your best’. It is through this focus and philosophy we can encourage the character education aspect of the provision.

All SSG activity day packages are flexible in how they are applied in delivery and we can identify exactly how best to do that through a quick and simple conversation with the school.

All activity days are fully inclusive for all pupils as activities will be adapted for different ages and abilities, including pupils with specific and challenging barriers such as SEND, confidence and weight management issues.

  • Determination

  • Organisation
  • Problem Solving
