Sports Leaders & Work Experience
Students within the sports department were involved in a variety of sports leadership opportunites during this term
Exhall Grange Cross Country
The first opportunity involved 7 students studying a BTEC NVQ in Activity Leadership, travelling to Exhall Grange School to help lead and orgainse the school's annual whole school Cross Country Event. The same students then ran a similar event for regions special school. Studentinvolved were: Sophie Paris, Toby Bevins, Nico Gouviea, Lawrence Schofield, Caroline Day, Kyle Sugrue and Naomi Faria. Students were responsible for setting up and taking down the course, providing refreshments for participants, providing demonstration to the paricipants, marshalling around the course, guide running with partially sighted and blind participants and general motivation and encouragement for participants. All students involved were a credit to themselves and by their own admission gained extremely valuable experience. These students were able to use this as a great form of evidence for their course of study.
