GCSE Sport is one of our core subjects and the active curriculum delivers this to ks4.
“The curriculum you offer to pupils is broad and varied, and is tailored to meet their individual needs. Activities offered as part of your active curriculum include football,
dry-slope skiing, indoor climbing, canoeing and bush-craft. Pupils appreciate these activities and being able to suggest which activities they can do. The opportunity to take GCSEs, combined with the wide range of other qualifications offered to pupils, helps to prepare pupils well for their future life. Staff work
effectively together to ensure that all pupils
have access to a completely bespoke curriculum.
When devising these curriculums, the emotional,
social and learning needs of each pupil are
considered fully. As a result, pupils are keen to
come to school. They can access all aspects of
the curriculum easily, and consequently engage
positively in their learning. Your flexible
approach ensures that they leave the school
with increased resilience and self-confidence.”
Key elements to the design of the curriculum are
centred on accessing a host of expertise that
may be found outside of the classroom, whether
these are external coaches in sports or high
quality professionals in new areas like Outdoor
and Adventurous Activities, students will experience new settings.
The Bridge Active team use a rich variety of venues to provide pupils with a sense of the community around them, the opportunities available to them and access to high quality professional coaching, mentoring and expertise.
Team members are qualified to deliver a variety of activities and are ideally placed to advise, support and develop children at ks3 and 4.
