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 subject entails and some can offer a qualification at the end of the year. All subjects are timetables for 1 period a week.

*incurs a £90 course fee (support available for eligable students)

Students will be able to submit their course choice from 7pm on Monday 15th May 2023. Some courses have limited spaces, so will be filled on a 'first come, first served' basis.
