Core Skills Day



Core Skills Day is taking place this year on Monday 23rd July. Students will take part in an extraordinary day of workshops and activities, from table tennis to upcycling to campfire cooking. The students will compete against each other to earn house points and take home the glory for their house. They will learn new skills, wave their house flags high and celebrate all this year's achievements. Our specialist team of student reporters will take over the newsletter, twitter and website to run a live feed of all the day's events.

Why we needed you
To make this day extra special, the Heads of Houses have raised money in order to buy prizes to reward the incredible students who have gone above and beyond. Our aim was to raise £300.... we have over doubled that!

Thank you for your support :-) 

Keep your eyes peeled on this this and our Twitter page for updates Core Skills Day 2018!


On Wednesday 19th July students had the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities and workshops; this year's day-long event was based around the themes of internationalism and exploration.

What will happen on the day?

Students will move around the school, participating in 5 different workshops within the category they have chosen; learning new skills, meeting new people and generally having a great day!

Students took over the FHS website to document, explore & share their findings and feelings towards this special day of celebration. See the links on the left hand side!


Core Skills last year was very exciting for FHS students. They had the opportunity to experience a wide variety of activities, based around six different industries (Archaeology, Engineering, Olympian, Soldier, Journalist & Performer).
