Leadership and Challenge

In Year 9, to enrich students’ education, there is a leadership and challenge pathway where students are given the opportunity to gain life skills or qualifications.

Our Leadership and Challenge courses run in year 9 only, and while they are not part of GCSEs, they do offer students a taste of what choosing subjects entails and some can offer a qualification at the end of the year. All subjects are then timetabled for 1 period a week.

Courses on offer:

  • Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award*
  • Google Workspace Passport
  • Rookie Lifeguard
  • Photography
  • Media Studies
  • Sports Leaders
  • British Sign Language
  • Dance
  • Textiles

*incurs a parent contribution of £150 (support available for eligible students)
