Year 7 and 8 have a timetabled EDGE lesson once a fortnight.

This is an exciting new school initiative that is dedicated to improving the key life skills that students need to leave Rye Hills with "the edge" over the peers. The working world is a competitive place and we want our students to be successful, not only in the exam hall but in future education or the working environment too.

Edge lessons focus on five attributes:

  • Leadership
  • Organisation
  • Resilience 
  • Initiative 
  • Communication

Through discussion based activities and setting personal challenges for students to complete outside edge lessons we hope to ensure students become the most successful version of themselves.
