It isn't 'English', as such, but it's really interesting. The school has a project unit on Year 7 and 8 timetables and uses it kind of like a "Learn to learn" scheme to develop independent learning/creativity etc. What I like is how it's giving kids the confidence and language to explore identity and concepts, and how it does this within an approach that's rigorous, purposeful and developmental. Enjoy.
