2017/18 Student Highlights

“Sports Enrichment gave me the opportunity to experience sports that I wouldn’t normally do. The coach was great and patient with me and I really enjoyed it. I brought my friends along too and it became really sociable and fun!” Jack Flay, Yr 2 BTEC Sport “I really enjoy the coaching aspect of the course and the time spent at Catcott Primary School. I like the way we get the freedom to coach the primary school kids and the way we are involved in coaching sports that we would never think about coaching by ourselves”. Laura Hodges, Yr 2 BTEC Sport “One of the units that we study is Sports Injuries and as part of that unit we have to take part in some First Aid Training, I was really surprised at just how much I enjoyed it! To be able to discover some really useful and helpful information in a practical way based around sporting scenarios was a great way to learn”. Caitlin Carnegie, Yr 2 BTEC Sport
