3 Day Episodes

3 Day Episodes happen each term at Alfriston College. The normal school timetable is suspended and learners opt into an 'episode' of their choosing. Episodes on offer cover a wide range of learning topics from culture, to finding out about a career, to learning a new craft.

3 Day Episodes are an exciting part of the learning experience at Alfriston College and are an innovative approach to teaching and learning. During this time, regular classes don't run, but learners from all Year levels select a three day program to participate in. These programmes allow Learning Leaders to extend and enhance the curriculum. Learning can be presented at various celebrations around the school and in the local community.
