Year 10 and 11 Lifelong Involvement
Year 10: Participation in all pathways
The same 4 pathways will be accessible to year 10 and 11; social, team, individual and leadership. However, during year 10 all 4 pathways are compulsory. Students will follow each as a unit over a termly period.
LEADERSHIP IN YEAR 10.The leadership pathway will follow a slightly stricter scheme of work so that students can be given the opportunity to try out what the Level 2 Sports Leaders course will be like in year 11, where they can opt to fully participate.
In year 11, students can opt into a pathway at the beginning of the year. There will be schemes of work for each pathway to follow on a termly basis to provide more focus. The leadership pathway will provide students with a Level 1 Leadership Award – and the teacher in charge of a Leadership group will work with Primary Schools in order for students to gain as much leadership experience as possible.
