Girls in Year 7 do not sit exams at the end of the year but instead do a week long Independent Learning Project (ILP). They are also taken off timetable for five sessions throughout the year for Year 7 challenges. These extend their research, thinking and presentation skills across the curriculum, as well as encouraging their creativity. Year 8 have a one-day ILP that continues to develop these important skills.
