The QUEST Award has been introduced to St Christopher’s as a way to formally recognise the extra activities our pupils do, beyond the curriculum.

We are aiming to equip our students with the skills needed for their future.

  • Demonstrate independence
  • Build content knowledge
  • Respond to varying demands of audience.
  • Comprehend as well as critique, you don’t have to agree with everything
  • Value evidence
  • Use technology and digital media strategically and capably
  • Come to understand other perspectives and cultures

These skills are vital for education as well as employers.

We feel the five strands of the QUEST Award: Question, Unite, Explore, Sport and The Arts will help children to enhance their experience in education. To receive the QUEST Award the children must take part in an activity linked to each of the five aspects.

What we are expecting

Students can choose one project title to accomplish these five aspects or can do mini tasks for each one.

Please work to your child’s strengths. Other siblings can also take part, in their own project, in fact it would be really helpful for us, if they did.

Mini Projects

Should be equivalent to an A4 page of feedback or review, as the emphasis is on the activity they take part in. Maybe a photograph of pupil undertaking the activity/product they made. Download the A5 Mini-Project Form to keep a record of what's been completed.

Large Projects

These should be equivalent to five or more sides of A4 writing. The emphasis is on the individual presenting work in their own style. It could be a traditional booklet or PowerPoint. Other options include, newspaper, model, animation, YouTube style video, diary, piece of art work to name but a few. Download a copy of the Large Project Form which needs to be completed and handed in before starting any work.
