Sports Leaders is a recognised qualification that is offered as part as part of the sixth form enrichment program. The qualification is designed to use sport and physical activity to help students hone their leadership skills whilst helping themselves and others stay physically active.
Students plan, lead and evaluate physical activity sessions over several classroom-based and practical lessons. This qualification enables students to learn and demonstrate vital life skills such as effective time management, organisation and communication whilst learning to lead basic physical activities to younger students within our school community, and pupils at our feeder primary schools. We offer level 2 Sports Leadership qualification which also carries UCAS points.
