Confidence Club with Fairchildes Primary School

Partner: Fairchildes Primary School, New Addington, Croydon
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Academic

Sometimes the only thing holding girls back is a lack of confidence in themselves, in their abilities or in the importance of their ideas. The Confidence Club is a 4-week programme which focuses on building confidence in girls through Drama, Art, English and History.

The sessions focus on:

•          Finding a way to show your ideas and how you think and feel through Drama.

•          Using poetry and performance to present your ideas to others.

•          Expressing who you are and what others see through Art

•          Speaking out – looking at the Amnesty movement and how we can offer a voice to those without one.

Impact

“Confidence Club at Croydon High has been an invaluable experience for my daughter and I have loved hearing about what she has learnt and how much fun she has had each week. The club has really helped empower her and her confidence had grown immensely.” Parent

“I had a lot of fun at Confidence Club and liked all of my teachers. My favourite part was the lesson on the amnesty movement where we performed a protest for the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe from an Iranian prison. I have learnt a lot from my time here and I had fun along the way”. Ellie, participant in Summer 2018
