Extra-curricular:

Students are encouraged to attend extra-curricular activities in order to support their progress in this subject. Students will also be required to carry out part of their individual training programme in their own time for the completion of Unit 4.

 

Trips and visits offered:

Trips offered to students so far this year include a visit to The University of Birmingham, which provided our students with the opportunity to learn about social media and technology in sport.

Some of our students are also involved in a ProGoals initiative which is providing them with some invaluable experiences which they will hopefully never forget.
