Minerva Learning Trust


In accordance with The Department for Education guidance we aim to actively promote British Values at HGCSC to ensure our students leave us prepared for life in modern Britain. Students are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

Culture Challenge

Challenge: Take part in as many cultural experiences as possible. You should aim for 7 in year 7, 8 in year 8, 9 in year 9 etc. You can choose which experiences to collect by going to our website. Ask a teacher or adult to verify your experiences by signing each box once you have described your experiences.

What is ‘culture’?

  1. Art, music, literature, etc., thought of as a group.
  2. The customs and beliefs, art, way of life and social organisation of a particular country or group.

Experiences outside of the classroom are extremely valuable. They can help you to develop knowledge, skills, confidence and vocabulary that help you to connect with the wider world. Employers feel that cultural experiences are important. They can be lots of fun too!

Happy Challenge Hunting!
