Extra Curricular

In the past we have taken students on a salon retreat day at Carden Park Health/Spa Resort in Cheshire. The students spend a whole day at the spa relaxing, having treatments and they are given access to the pool area. This has given students an opportunity to see what it is like to be a client and enjoy all the treatments on offer. They have also experienced a working environment and seen how organisations are run in the ‘real working world’

Level 3 students visit the hair and beauty shows which are held once a year in Blackpool or Manchester. This experience allows the students to spend a day watching technical demonstrations and seeing the latest technology on offer in the different industries.

Key stage 4 and 5 students are also given the opportunity to take part in an annual hair and beauty show held in the school theatre. This enhances their creativity skills and it gives them a chance to confidently show case their hairdressing and beauty skills to others.
